Disassemble kernel system_call

aptitude -q -y install build-essential
aptitude -q -y install linux-source
gdb -q /usr/src/linux-source-`uname -r`/vmlinux
(gdb) disassemble system_call

Disassemble and strace running programs

cat /dev/random >/dev/null &
WCHAN=$(cat /proc/${PID}/wchan)
echo "command: ${CMD}, pid: ${PID}, wchan: ${WCHAN}"
strace -p ${PID}
gdb ${CMD} ${PID}
