Linux on custom Xilinx board with PPC405 hangs on boot

	I have a custom Xilinx FPGA board which is similar to ML300 but
uses Uartllite and does not have disk or display.
	When I start the Linux kernel I end up with an exception during
the probe for Flash - I think. 
	I have added a bunch of printk lines in order to see what is
happening but I am a little stuck at the moment. 
	The Flash chip is an AM29LV320D 4Mbyte in 16-bit access mode,
and it sits on address 0xFF80'0000
	This is what I get on my terminal. I would be happy to hear your
