Thanks for your notes, they are very helpful.

I wonder are there any other people on this list using jtag adapters who
would be willing to share a list of devices.

I am looking to purchase one and it would be great to have a list of known
devices so that not only me but others can have a list of devices known to
work on FreeBSD.

Anyone out there w/ jtag adapters care to chime in about their devices?
