What do you mean by debug mode? Do you want to use the debug
option
in gcc to build the kernel (or) want to to debug the kernel using a
debugger?

I need to buld the kernel with debug option and after that debug it
with a debugger.

If you have a kernel w/ kgdb support, than this would be one with a
'unoffical' patch applied. Is this certain? If not, trying to get
along with 'printk' and/or CONFIG_DEBUG_LL is probably easier.
