Update- After enabling hw watchdog- by loading the ichwd kernel module and
starting the watchdog daemon I am not getting any clue.
After enabling hw-watchdog and starting the guest, the system becomes
unresponsive. Neither does the watchdogd trigger a system reboot.
I followed this-
http://koitsu.wordpress.com/2010/07/13/freebsd-and-hardwaresoftware-watchdogs/-
to enable hw-watchdog.
