What exactly do you want to  ask?  Why  are  you  using  code  for  a
ARM926EJS  when  in fact you have a ARM920T processor? You should use
(or create) a port of the ARM920T code for your board.

Are you sure that 0x7fc0 is a good choice? Do you have  RAM  starting
at physical address 0?

I have the feeling that you might have missed to read the FAQ, especially

If you have a ARM920T processor, then yes, you will  need  a  ARM920T
