kernel module debugging

Hi all,
i am fresher in kernel module debugging. i need to put break point on kernel module function. When i tried to put break point on the function, the gdb saying put break at the particular function and also display the address of the function. But when i accessing the function from my application it did not break on the function. I think this is because of paging issues. anybody have idea about it? please help me.

I have this same problem. The breakpoint I set returns me to io.h line 34.
Strange and random.

I'm sorry I cannot offer any help, but I figure this post will bump your question if nothing else.

Best of luck, and let me know if you have a breakthrough.
