u-boot is based on armboot which is based on ppcboot. This stuff worked in 
armboot but apparently has not been fixed for u-boot. I think Robert Schwebel 
has made the most progress with u-boot on PXA. You may want to check his 
board for latest updates. 

Wolfgang, has Robert's patches been merged into CVS yet?
