I have almost precisely the same setup with a SheevaPlug. This appears
to be a problem with uboot; I suspect its USB support is pretty dodgy.

I eventually gave up trying to fix this and instead load the kernel and
initrd off an SD card. I realise this isn't technically an answer to
your question, but it may be the easiest way to get things running
