It is a custom board? Did you register a MACH_NUMBER?

In you board_init() do something like:

         /* arch number of AT91RM9200 */
         /*gd->bd->bi_arch_number = 251;*/
         gd->bd->bi_arch_number = MACH_TYPE_MULTIIO;
         /* adress of boot parameters */
         gd->bd->bi_boot_params = PHYS_SDRAM + 0x100;

Just make sure your board_init() sets the correct (TM) arch_number.
