QEMU includes gdbserver emulator which is capable of debugging the whole emulated system, including firmwares, drivers, and BIOS code. However, debugging with a multi-process operating system is tricky, because GDB does not distinguish the processes within the guest.
In this talk authors discuss the approaches for making the debugging better: detecting the processes, inspection of the address spaces, instrumenting the code, mapping the executables, and so on.

The talk also includes overview of the new debugging stub for QEMU which allows using WinDbg without switching the guest system into the debugging mode.
