Debugging Linux Kernel Module with kdb

Any body can help me???

I patched my kernel with kdb
I built it
I installed it properly always
I added module scull

In console it can be invoked
Break point is set for scull_read with no problems

But it does not prompt at break point

bp scull_read

cat > /dev/scull
Hello World

I pressed Ctrl-D

cat /dev/scull
Hello World

No break point is prompted !!!????
I have also tried all this in single user mode

Any help will be appreciated

how to patch 2.4.20-8 kernel with kdb

I tried to patch my kernel 2.4.20-8 with kdb (kdb-v4.3-2.4.20-common-1 and kdb-v4.3-2.4.20-i386-1). But the kernel did not get patched. Lot of .rej files are formed in many directories.
Then I tried to patch the same kernel with (kdb-v3.0-2.4.20-common-1 and kdb-v3.0-2.4.20-i386-1).
Lot or .rej files are formed in many directories. Now how to get rid of these .rej files. will kernel compilation help in gettin rid of these files or do I have to manually search them and delete them. Will the presence of these .rej files effect my future kdb patching attempts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
