I don't have the board, but I tried to see if there was anything
obviously wrong.

I built images with and without CBFS, and looked at the coreboot.map
and the hexdumps of the files.  It looked fine to me.

I ran both images in qemu, and they both fail at the same point, but
after printing a banner:

coreboot-2.0.0-r4352M.0Fallback Mon Jun  8 10:27:52 MDT 2009 starting...
Device not found, Corey probably screwed up!

I wanted to see if the jumps were set up correctly.  That makes me
wonder why you get no serial output.  XIP settings?  They seem right,

I don't see anything.  Sorry I couldn't help more.
