Hi again! 
           Okey, No problem, I'm looking at Valgrind again. 
           About Serial/Remote debugger, I can go ahead if anyone of you guys may help me to point out extactly 
what exactly will be starting point on Dragonflybsd or no need of thinking about this issue for the time being etc?
           I tried from my best to search something related to serial port module in dragonflybsd but no luck yet :(

:Hi Matthew!=20
:           Thanks for your reply.=20
:           It's nice that you think terminal library related idea will be n=

:device using serial port. Debugging remotely is most wanted thing that embe=
:dded bsd is not supporting easily.=20
:           Do you think that I can go ahead with this idea and make a raw p=
:roposal before submitting to GSoC site for your valuable suggestions?      =

    Well, I'm being corrected on IRC re: Valgrind.  People are telling
    me they think its harder then I thought it was, so I guess it's
    a reasonable GSOC project :-).

    We do have kernel gdb-over-serial, or at least we used to (inherited from
    FreeBSD).  It might not be operational in DFly right now.

    The remote debugging idea is still a bit too raw.
