If you have some clue about where things are going wrong, adding
instrumentation to the kernel in the form of printk() calls might
help you narrow it down. I believe it's also possible to debug a
running kernel using gdb on a different machine, but I don't know
how that works (and I could just be hallucinating the whole notion).
