We (DENX) have been maintaining those TQM8xx boards (U-Boot & Linux). But till 
now nobody asked us to port these over to arch/powerpc. You may understand 
that we won't do this "just for fun". If you are interested in an 
arch/powerpc port for these boards, we could do this of course. Please 
contact me off list if you are interested in such a project.
