Resetting a serial port

I've got a box connected to an hardware device through a serial port.
This is a real RS-232 on the motherboard, not an USB adapter.
From time to time, the serial port will got stuck and stop
communicating with the device.
This is not a problem with the device, as powering it on and off won't
help. Instead rebooting the whole FreeBSD server will solve.
This box, however, is running several services, several jails and a
couple of bhyve VMs, so rebooting it all is... somewhat troublesome at
Is there anything I can try (hopefully a long time from now) to get the
serial port back working without a real reboot?
bye & Thanks
