Are you using cuImage, or a regular uImage with a device-tree-aware 
u-boot?  If the former, try commenting out the call to fixup_pci() in 
arch/powerpc/boot/cuboot-pq2.c and let me know if that changes anything.

Otherwise, are you sure the kernel didn't move BARs around such that 
there's no longer a PCI device mapped at 0x88000000 (or that the device 
that is there has been disabled)?

Can you show the contents of the following big endian registers:
TESCR1 (0x10040), TESCR2 (0x10044), PCIBRx (0x101ac, 0x101b0), and 
PCIMSKx (0x101c4, 0x101c8)

and the following little endian registers:
POTARx (0x10800, 0x10818, 0x10830), POBARx (0x10808, 0x10820, 0x10838), 
POCMRx (0x10810, 0x10828, 0x10840), POESR (0x10084), PCI_EACR (0x10890), 
and PCI_ECCR (0x108a0)

after the machine check happens?
