As far as I know pdb is abandoned.

There is a Xen gdb stub in the hypervisor under xen/common/gdbstub.c (there 
are also arch-specific parts).  You'll need another machine and a null modem 
cable in order to debug Xen.

You need to build Xen with "make crash_debug=y" in order to build in support 
for this.  If you have an existing Xen tree you should probably do "make 
clean" first, to get rid of any stale modules.
