I already ported U-Boot to this board. I'm preparing patch which I'll
send to this list soon.

...because 8248 belongs to 8260 family. The folder you need is mpc8260.

MPC8248 is a PowerQUICC II chip (communication controller) while mpc824x
folder is for integrated processors (8245 et al). These really are two
different families.
