Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+ bool "Use kernel GDB debugger"
+ ---help---
+ The CRIS version of gdb can be used to remotely debug a running
+ Linux kernel via the serial debug port. Provided you have gdb-cris
+ installed, run gdb-cris vmlinux, then type
+ (gdb) set remotebaud 115200 <- kgdb uses 115200 as default
+ (gdb) target remote /dev/ttyS0 <- maybe you use another port
+ This should connect you to your booted kernel (or boot it now if you
+ didn't before). The kernel halts when it boots, waiting for gdb if
+ this option is turned on!
+config DEBUG_INFO
+ bool "Compile the kernel with debug info"
+ help
+ If you say Y here the resulting kernel image will include
+ debugging info resulting in a larger kernel image.
+ Say Y here only if you plan to use gdb to debug the kernel.
+ If you don't debug the kernel, you can say N.
+ bool "Compile the kernel with frame pointers"
+ help
+ If you say Y here the resulting kernel image will be slightly larger
+ and slower, but it will give very useful debugging information.
+ If you don't debug the kernel, you can say N, but we may not be able
+ to solve problems without frame pointers.
