I presume you fixed the /aliases node to point to serial at 2600 too?  Odd, 
there isn't an /aliases node in the kernel lite5200.dts.  I may not know 
what I'm talking about.  How do you specify the console to linux?  (That 
is a rhetorical question.  I don't know myself.)

Oh, and I see you posted to the eldk list, it should have been posted to 
the u-boot list (I cross posted this reply).
