Check the definition of the bd_info structure in the est8260.h  Linux
kernel header file; it must match the definition defined and exported
by PPCBoot.

You can simply replace the whole file by this:

----- cut here -----
 * Board information for the EST8260.

#define IMAP_ADDR ((uint)0xf0000000)

#include <asm/ppcboot.h>
----- cut here -----

C makes it easy for you to shoot yourself in the foot. C++ makes that
harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg.
