Is add-symbol-files broken on 64bit? (Need help!!!)

The problem is that I can use the same way to debug 32bit env. Also, I
can see the debugging symbol and line numbers from the ko file.

Thanks,
Neo

But, I can't break on the symbols in the kernel module after it is loaded. I used the "add-symbol-files" to add the sections for that loadable module.

I would remember that if researchers were not ambitious
probably today we haven't the technology we are using!
