Default [HEADSUP] KDB, KDB_TRACE are now in GENERIC kernels

From http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...er/059666.html

KDB and KDB_TRACE are now included into GENERIC kernels on stable/8 branch.
This should not break anything for you.  But if you include GENERIC into your
custom kernel config and you already have the above options there, then you will
get warnings about duplicate options.  You can simply remove the second copy.
The purpose of the change is to get a stack trace from a panic or a trap in a
default installation.  We still don't configure any debugger backend by default.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
