Nice progress! Since you have a logic analyzer, you should definitely
get a sense of the timing, which may or may not reveal anything. You
have this chip select really slowed down, and it's asynchronous, so
something would have to really be out of whack.
I'd be more tempted to look elsewhere. What else do you have on the
local bus? Are other devices isolated via buffers in the same way that
the Freescale eval boards are? Is the flash VCC looking good? Is the
reset signal solid?
