Is this really a Lite5200, or is it a Lite5200B?

Hint: if U-Boot prints something like "CPU: MPC5200B v2.2, Core v1.4"
then its a 5200B, and thus a Lite5200 board.

For a Lite5200B you should use the lite5200b device tree.

Rigth. Because there are virtually no lite5200 boards out there.

Both will work. On a Lite5200 board I would use lite5200b_defconfig,

	make ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=ppc_6xx- mrproper
	make ARCH=powerpc CROSS_COMPILE=ppc_6xx- 52xx/lite5200b_defconfig

Looks as if you have a Rev. B CPU with the wrong device tree.

Unfortunaltey you omit the interesting part (i. e. the U-Boot boot
message) which would contain this important piece of information.
