Linux Kernel Debugging Using QEMU

You can use classical debugger for your Linux kernel programming, though Torvalds doesn’t like it. I also do not prefer such use of debuggers, but admit that sometimes debuggers are quite useful. ;) There are several ways to debug Linux kernel, but one of above is to set up a Linux virtual machine using QEMU and debugging the Linux kernel of the virtual machine from the host machine. This post summarises how to debug the Linux kernel in this way.
