Change 0xfe000000 to wherever u-boot maps your flash, and 0x01000000 to 
whatever the size of the flash localbus mapping is.

Or more generally update this section to hold whatever is connected to 
the localbus on your board.  The first cell is the chipselect.

The address change is for the different IMMR base, only this use is too 
early/hacky to get it from the device tree.
