U-Boot 1.1.2 nows  absolutely  nothing  about  device  trees  yet.  I
recommend  to  update  to  current  code  - both for U-Boot and Linux
(Linux is really old, too).

You probably can run a recent kernel on that old U-Boot version using
a cuImage, but it would be better to use current code.

Best regards,
