In one of the machines I am facing a scenario:
I recompiled Ubuntu linux kernel (with the default config taken from
/boot) and the newly compiled kernel does not boot. After detecting
the hard disk (SCSI device) it panics. I am able to see only a part of
the kernel stack trace due to low resolution so I am in a situation
where I cannot do anything further. In this situation kgdb seems to be
the only way.

Note: The case I mentioned in my first mail is different from this case.
