That patch has some known issues. I'd sugest the 2.2.14 patch instead,
except I only know that it works for the kernel supplied with Redhat 6.2.

The main issue with the 2.2.12 patch is that it does not correctly parce
the gdbttyS=<> and gdbbaud=<> lines. In fact, it doesn't parce them at

Cable things up so that everything is using the default values, and you
should be able to get it to work. There may be some communication issues
and trapping issues, but I'm not certain about those.

Hope this helps
