Try making the lengths actual lengths (and not high addresses).
For example, ram : ORIGIN = 0, LENGTH = 0x02000000

Also, get rid of those "reserved" lines.

I'd try to make this look more like an LDI file that is known
to work, e.g. the iPAQ.

Finally, private assistance is only available under contract.
I'm happy to answer questions without such, but only if the
discussion is shared with the community at large.
