Ah, so you can see the bloodstains then? :-)
Er, I mean, uh, thank you!

That would be me.

There is a slight variation between the published CVS version of
the MPC8555CDS U-Boot code and the variants that appear directly
on the board as supplied by Freescale. Specifically, there is
code to support some BDI-level debugging in the supplied version
that is not yet in the Open Source CVS tree. (We're working on
fixing that.) Other than that, the Freescale variant and the
CVS are very similar.
Between 2004810 and now, there have been several fixes to
the Flash support. Some of those have been committed to the
public CVS, and some have not; all have been pushed to the
list. (If you patch up the published set, let me know and
I'll send you the one-liner fix that is pending here too.)
Can you be more specific than "Doesn't come up?"
