The trick here is reasoning by analogy:  What is the regular unix program the
most similar to the kernel debugger?  dc, of course.  How do you get out of
dc?  By typing ctrl/D.  (Only wimps type q.)  Case solved.  The manual could
be more helpful, although typing "help" to the debugger does tell you this.
