Oh well... I naively thought that you could just run gdb on Cygwin and
run the eCOS kernel and applications on top of that.
If I understand well, one thing I ought to do is to get an old i386
box and use Redboot to download applications onto it. Then I can use
gdb on Cygwin to do some debugging through the serial cable.
