Thanx for all the replies and facts . Actually my main concern is
regarding identifying kernel panics and system hangs
on embedded arm targets where i have access to only one serial port
used primarily for reporting debug messages .
Also wrt x86 , i tried to use gdb - kgdb interface using 2 PCs , but
communication used to break too often .
Then i tried ftrace which i found quite convinient to use on x86 till
now except sometimes when ftrace takes too much time to print
complete trace on console in case of crash .
Can crash utility be used for arm targets as well ?
