MPC8560 boot console (CPM SCC) driver problem

I download a 2.6.8 Linux kernel to port it to a custom 8560 board
similar to MPC8560_ADS board..

In the arch/ppc/boot directory there is no 85xx_io directory with
a CPM uart driver.

The kernel link waits for some serial basic functions like serial_getc().

I found the generic ./drivers/serial/cpm_uart driver, but it seems to only
used later when Linux is installed.

Surely I miss something.
How can I have a console for my boot ?
Are 8260 cpm2 definitions compatible with 85xx ?
