GDB kernel debugging is supported for the software emulation flow. When the GDB executable is connected to the kernel in the IDE or command line flows, you can set breakpoints and query the content of variables in the kernel, similar to normal host code debugging. This is fully supported in the software emulation flow because the kernel GDB processes attach to the spawned software processes.
