Hummmmm, interesting.  I get a blob of about 4K when I do it.  Oh, ooops. 
Sorry.  I did have to modify the *.dts file to get it to compile.  There 
was an error because there wasn't a 'linux,boot-cpu' entry in the cpu 

Adding the '-V 0x10' changed the behavior and I now seem to be hanging in 
__delay() in serial8250_console_putchar().  Seems maybe the kernel is (at 
least partially) up but I've got no console port.  There may have been a 
version issue.  The DTC I'm using defaluted to a version 3 of the device 
tree.  I think I'm getting further in the kernel booting process (haven't 
had a chance to really debug it yet) than I was now that I'm telling DCT 
to generate a version 0x10 device tree.

I'm thinking this is a u-boot/*.dts file problem.  The *.dts files isn't 
complete and/or u-boot 1.1.6. isn't finishing filling in the device tree 
as expected.  I think now my problem is that the *.dts file expects u-boot 
to fill in the 'clock-frequency' node in the serial ports and it's not 
doing so.  Timur indicates 1.1.6 doesn't support this board and I should 
move to 1.2.  Kumar also suggested this (even though I thought he was 
suggesting I go backwards ;) sorry for the confusion Kumar) so I think 
I'll give it a try.  I appreciate all the help from here, but since it 
seems more u-boot-ish than kernel I'm going to switch this to the u-boot 
list.  Seems more appropriate.  If I find there are problems with the 
*.dts file, I'll push that back here since they're part of the kernel 

Thanks again for the help.
