Why are you using which is rather old and doesn't have
any Virtex-II Pro support?

Virtex-II Pro support in 2.6 is very minimalistic at the moment:

Nevertheless, it should be enough to bring up your board
with 16x50 UART and ramdisk (I mean adding your platform using
ML300 as a template).

This stuff works for me in the following configuration:
     Xilinx ML300
     Example #7

You could also need the TLB bug fix mentioned at:
   (look for "Solution 12")

Best regards,
