ctrl-a is also used in screen as the default escape, so I vote for
getting rid of ctrl-a as the kdb break sequence...
Under Solaris, you hit Stop-A on a keyboard or send a break signal on a
serial line to break into the debugger (if it is on, normally this would
bring you to the prom). I have been meaning to implement the same thing
on the sparc64 port.
what is the problem with using the serial break to get into kdb?
