These are reasonable places to start:

One little thing that might not be obvious to a newcomer:  any time you
build a new kernel, the 'old' kernel is stripped of debugging symbols
and saved as kernel.old.

If you need to reboot kernel.old (e.g. the new kernel panics on boot)
then be careful to point gdb to the 'new' kernel which still has the
debugging symbols.
