We have a suspicion about that and I might have just fixed it. But noone
has been actively hacking on SMP, so we have not concentrated on its
problems lately. Once you get as far as booting, there are known
unfinished things for SMP (I put in #warning lines so you'll see them when
you build with --enable-smp=2).

That is easy as pie. Just download the gdb source and use "configure
--host=... --target=i586-gnu" to build it (or i?86-linux, just as good).
You should get an i586-gnu-gdb that is just what you need for serial debugging.
