I am not following all the details, but I have a maybe-helpful maybe-not

I have a wicked old box with an ICH6, bought 2006 or so.  dmesg excerpt:

  cpu0 at mainbus0 apid 0
  cpu0: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.40GHz, id 0xf43
  cpu0: package 0, core 0, smt 0
  ichlpcib0 at pci0 dev 31 function 0: vendor 8086 product 2640 (rev. 0x03)
  timecounter: Timecounter "ichlpcib0" frequency 3579545 Hz quality 1000
  ichlpcib0: 24-bit timer
  tco0 at ichlpcib0: TCO (watchdog) timer configured.
  tco0: Min/Max interval 1/367 seconds
  piixide0 at pci0 dev 31 function 1: Intel 82801FB IDE Controller (ICH6) (rev. 0x03)
  piixide0: bus-master DMA support present
  piixide0: primary channel configured to compatibility mode
  piixide0: primary channel interrupting at ioapic0 pin 14

Under NetBSD 5 i386, the watchdog worked (but it appeared as ichlcib0 or
something instead).  Under NetBSD 9 i386, it appears to work but does
not fire.  I have not tried amd64, or 6/7/8/proto10.

Figuring this out is on the part of my todo list I don't really expect
to get to, but maybe we'll have a long snowy winter.
