I noticed that gdb doesn't support gcc3-compiled kernel with debug symbols.
I have to build a kernel with gcc2 and with netgraph drivers compiled in so
that they show up in the backtrace.

1. when the netgraph code tries to call a function in a module that's
not yet loaded, it calls linker_search_path(), which then passes
curthread to NDINIT, where KKASSERT(p != NULL) failed(p = td->td_proc).

2. when trying to open a pptp session with mpd, socreate() dereferences
   things via td->td_proc, but it's NULL. here's a backtrace roughly
   written down by hand:


(sorry, I don't know how to reproduce this with ngctl yet,
I'm still learning it). I put printf()'s in these functions and at least
at ngc_send, curthread->td_proc was not NULL, but it's NULL in ng_add_hook.
I know td->td_proc may be NULL, but with older kernel it doesn't panic
in the places above. I don't know what caused this though.

Anyway I'm going to build a few kernels from source as of several days
before with gcc2 to make sure this is not yet another CPU optimization bug
I acidentally hit.
