There's an man page gdb(4) in -CURRENT which will, to some extent, help you with remote debugging. Note that the macros mentioned are in 4.8, but they're in a different form in the directory /usr/src/sys/modules/vinum. You'll have to play around with them to get them to work. Also, 4.8 does not support debugging over firewire.
