Learning C and probably C++ and maybe some Assembly is good.

After that, you might want to absorb the McKusic books: 'Design and
Implementaiton of the (4.3 and) 4.4 BSD Operating System.

There is also some online documentation on writing drivers.  I don't have
the address at hand, but a little searching on the FreeBSD web site
should turn it up.
