If you have custom hardware, you cannot use the configuration for the
Cogent board. Each board needs special adaptions and configuration.

Why do you do this? If you have read the U-Boot mailing list archives
(You DID read he archives before posting, didn't you???)  you  should
have  learned  that  this  is  not  as  trivial  as it may seem. It's
defintely not an option if you don't know EXACTLY what you are doing.

Well, you ran into an error, obviously because the  flash  memory  on
your  hardware  is  different  from  the  configuration on the Cogent

And bythe way: please post such questions to the U-Boot-users mailing
list instead; they are off topic here.
