0. Your problem looks like the problem of contacts. Check that your wiggler 
is working properly by using the Macraigor's OCD debugger.
1. There is some bug/problem with mpc860/823 CPU's in gdb - you need to 
define the CPU type and thus the registers will become accessible, but this 
not happens. I just now simply use an old version of gdb 4.18, which is 
free of this bug.
2. Another problem, that you must be aware is that you must perform several 
initializing commands, such as define chip selects, IMMR, etc. to make the 
system capable of downloading the code.
