I downloaded the git sources by using
git-clone git://source.mvista.com/git/linux-davinci-2.6.git
i ran ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm_v5t_le- make distclean
then ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm_v5t_le- make
davinci_evm_dm644x_defconfig
then ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm_v5t_le- make uImage
I am using the Montavista compilation tools from Montavista's site.
I used tftpboot to boot off this image, and the board gets stuck after
"Uncompressing Linux ... done, booting the kernel."
I have only the ethernet, serial, and power cable plugged in.

This board works fine when using the TI 2.6.10 kernel.

Output:

## Booting image at 80700000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-2.6.20-omap1-ge7255f31-dir
