Problems with Remote Kernel Debugging on the 5.2.1 Kernel

I have configured remote kernel debugging as prescribed in the 
developer's handbook.

I am able to step through code, but once I enter "cont" in gdb on the 
debug machine, I cannot ever "interrupt" or "break" the target kernel 
execution.  It is as if the Ctrl-C character is being ignored on the 
target.  The target kernel was built with the ddb and -g options set, 
using config -g as well.

Has anyone seen such a problem?  This is the last hurdle before I can 
start debugging my wireless device driver.

Thanks in advance,
