This statement makes little sense to me.
First, the TQM8260 is not a Freescare card. The manufacturer is (or
rather was) TQ Systems.
Second, I wonder why you would spend any efforts into such a system -
the product was EOLed a long time ago.
Third, when the product was still alive, it was pretty well supported
by U-Boot and Linux. U-Boot sopport for it is still available in
mainline. Linux support was available in our linuxppc_2_4_devel tree
up to and including Linux version 2.4.25. So using 2.4.4 as a
starting point for such a work is even more incomprehensible to me.
If you really have a TQM8260 board, then just use the mainline U-Boot
code (current release, i. e. v20100.06) and the old 2.4.25 based
source tree mentioned above.
But be warned: this is ancient hardware, and so is the kernel code.
There is no guarantee it will even compile using recent tool chains.
