Merge branch 'for_linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jwessel/linux-2.6-kgdb
* 'for_linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jwessel/linux-2.6-kgdb: kgdb: Always process the whole breakpoint list on activate or deactivate kgdb: continue and warn on signal passing from gdb kgdb,x86: do not set kgdb_single_step on x86 kgdb: allow for cpu switch when single stepping kgdb,i386: Fix corner case access to ss with NMI watch dog exception kgdb: Replace strstr() by strchr() for single-character needles kgdbts: Read buffer overflow kgdb: Read buffer overflow kgdb,x86: remove redundant test
