My board is not as different to ml300 as one may think - indeed, it uses
the same Virtex2Pro FPGA with nearly the same configuration (wrt. UART,
I2C, EMAC). Therefore using ml300 as a starting point for my design
really makes sense. Of course I used the BSP compiled for my board using
Xilinx EDK 7.1

Well - I _did_ port it (in the sense of using the appropriate BSP) -
however, I modified ML300 source instead of creating a new
board-directory ...

Well - nothing - your are right - instead of the comment, that the
PowerPC code may hang immediatley _after_ "DRAM:" printout. This led me
to the assumption, that my problem may be well known ...
