[sorry for the delay, I wanted to give Jason a chance to answer this]

Very occasionally.

I can't find anything on lkml in the last three months, and I have
unreviewed kdb patches that stretch back well beyond that.

That said he still helps people on kgdb-bugreport@ from time-to-time
(and as recently as last week). I've also had a little bit of private
contact although nothing very recent.

On that basis I'd say you shouldn't feel guilty if you have to accept a
change here without an ack.
