Looking at the relevant datasheets the pin config is different for all
sides of the chip. Thus, you'll have to change the OP codes and
methods used in read, writing, and polling operations. Plus the WDT
setting procedure may be different...

I too haven't written drivers for FreeBSD, but given my [limited]
experience with C and PLDs (PICs to be exact), you may want to see
whether or not the timing specs aren't being met as shown in the
datasheet (assuming you're running into some level of deterministic
errors). Using NOPs or verifying via readback for write operations
(although inefficient) would most likely work to your advantage.

May also want to try hackers@ instead of current@
