$ ls arch/powerpc/boot/dts/tqm*
arch/powerpc/boot/dts/tqm5200.dts  arch/powerpc/boot/dts/tqm8555.dts
arch/powerpc/boot/dts/tqm8540.dts  arch/powerpc/boot/dts/tqm8560.dts

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like any of the tqm8xx boards have been
added to the device tree directory, so the answer is probably, 'no'.

I believe 8xx support is stable in arch/powerpc, but you'll need to
write a device tree file for the board.  Look for a similar board in
arch/powerpc/boot/dts/ to use as a starting point.

You'll probably also need to add a platform file to arch/powerpc/platforms/8xx
that matches against your new device tree file.
