Reading the FAQ's and mailing list archives is recommended.

Try updating U-Boot to a recent  version,  or  at  least  change  the
#define  for CFG_BCSR into 0xF4500000 (instead of the silly 04500000)
in "include/configs/MPC8260ADS.h" (also change  CFG_LSDRAM_BASE  into
0xFD000000 while you are at it).

It would have been nice if  you  hadd  added  the  results  of  these
attempts, too.
