Uninformed: Informative Information for the Uninformed

When gdb is started a file ``kgmacors'' should be sourced that contains a lot of useful debugging macros from the kernel debug kit. Most of these functions do not seem to work on the Intel platform. In some cases, one may get an error message stating that the command does not work with this architecture. In other cases, it may just silently fail. Although some commands like panic log are useful, other commands like showx86backtrace can actually destroy data needed for debugging.
