Following this old guide, I managed to start:-
FreeBSD/arm U-Boot loader, Revision 1.2
which is great progress for me. The instructions are little out of date and need updating, but at least I have arrived in FreeBSD land....

Not sure what to do next. Here is what I got:-
Code:

Not sure what loaderdev is used for or what sort of values it needs and have never before come across an LUA ERROR, but we're moving in the right direction....

In regards to the Lua error, as of FreeBSD12 the bootloader is now written in Lua instead of Forth.
A quick fix would be to revert to Forth. There is a setting for it. Your going to have to find that yourself.
Lookup all the recent Lua bootloader stuff. There is a fallback.

OK so what is the next step? Have you built or cobbled together a DTS for it?
Since uboot is the ~BIOS you have to tell it about the hardware it is trying to bootstrap.
This is where the DTS comes in. It describes the hardware because Arm has no Plug and Play.
You actually initialize the hardware with the DTS/DTB.
https://wiki.freebsd.org/FlattenedDeviceTree
Then boot your custom Kirkwood kernel.

My quick fix was to rebuild using FreeBSD 11.2 :)....

I still can't figure out how to point the loader to the kernel...

is it via DHCP's 'filename' and 'root-path' options?

No checkout this example from the FDT link.
make -j 8 buildworld TARGET_ARCH=arm -DWITH_FDT

You are building with your command for Arm and a custom kernel.
So you also need to add FDT support for the support of those tools.(-DWITH_FDT option builds the tools)
To me it looks like all you need is an DTS to proceed. The Linux DTS for your device will probably work for you.
There may be small incompatibilities between the FreeBSD needs and Linux. You will have to suss them out.
One possible way would be to start with a totally stripped out version.
Only enough to get it to boot, then add back fluffy things...

You passed milestone one with uboot over NFS. Now what?

So where are you thinking of going with this? 256Megabytes NAND is too small for an ordinary build.
You are going to have to slim your build with a custom /make.conf to get it to <256MB.
That or make the NAS devices internal HD part of OS and put just uboot/loader on NAND.
Regardless you need to make sure you don't use swap on the NAND. Minimize the writes to it.

So how are you compiling/building this??? Are you using a chroot env??

Also you need to be thinking ahead some. How will your devices 256MB's NAND look.
A small boot partition FAT for uboot and loader and the rest UFS for the OS.

Yell if you have any more specific questions.

All this looks way over my head...

No, I've only managed to load the bootloader - ubldr.bin via tftp. It will be milestone when I can load the kernel. That's where I'm stuck at the moment.

Booting from a USB stick would be nice. If I can achieve that, I'll think about how to proceed.

That custom kernconf may no longer be needed. That might have been a quirk on an older version of FreeBSD.
If it compiles OK then ignore that issue.

It looks like the FreeBSD build in source tree DTS might suffice.
/usr/src/sys/boot/fdt/dts/arm/db88f6281.dts
So just add -DWITH_FDT to your compile line. The kernconf points to the file needed.

If you look at the mailing list post they boot the kernel instead of the loader:

So first off recompile with -DWITH_FDT added to your command.
Will not work without this step.

Then try this:
tftpboot $addr_rd dockstarwoipsecnatt <<<< example provided<<<
Your setup:
tftpboot 900000 gfh2/DB-88F6XXX
go 900000
Kernel has no file extension. The kernconf 'ident' is the kernel name.

There's a couple of things to iron out but essentially it's working!

And it only took nearly two years to get to this point :). Many thanks to Phishfry and bodhi on the Doozan forum among others for their guidance...

Good Job.
I don't see your Marvell SATA controller in there yet.
There is a hackish way to add devices to your DTB.
You decompile your DTB, to a DTS(Device Tree Source) This makes it human readable.
Edit this source to add those lines from the mailing list for the Marvel SATA.(Remember the plus signs in the patch)
Then recompile back into a DTB(Device Tree Binary) reboot and you have SATA.
The compiler used is called dtc (Device Tree Compiler)
This compiler only works on DTS and DTB. It is a shortcut to recompiling everything.
https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?dtc
It only takes a few seconds to compile/decompile the DTS/DTB.

Found U-Boot device: net
Booting from net0:


The one from 11.1 boots from disk as a bootable device

U-Boot env: loaderdev not set, will probe all devices.
Found U-Boot device: disk
Probing all disk devices...
Checking unit=0 slice=<auto> partition=<auto>... good.
Booting from disk0s2:
Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf


Seeems like there is still quite a bit of work to do... Not sure what this loaderdev is or whether there are any FreeBSD utilities for accessing the uBoot environment

I think this is uboot presenting net0 to ubldr.
There have been changes to uboot to allow you to choose what device to boot off of. Just like a bios.
Have you been able to figure that out? There is some keystroke while uboot is loading that will allow you to choose boot device.
I suggest you figure that out.(Maybe ESC key?) I have a feeling the different ubldr 's are not the problem.
It is uboot and its boot priorities.

It's definitely a different ubldr. I'm using the same uBoot which is installed in Flash.

Can't work out where ubldr gets built...

Take a look at what trev writes here:

I think you should poke around your uboot just to figure it out.
There is also printenv which should show you some information from uboot command line.
Just wondered if there is a FreeBSD equivalent of fw_printenv which is available on Linux...

I'm very familiar with printenv...

This is what it shows:-
