If you're lucky, this will get you into fastboot mode where you could flash the debrick kernels and ssh-enabled diags partition, and then you could reboot into diags. Or did I miss something?
"bist" is the second-stage U-Boot, which is loaded by ordinary, first-stage U-Boot. bist U-Boot is bigger than ordinary U-boot and bigger than OCRAM size, so it can't be loaded right after restart. Initially, ordiinary U-Boot (which is loaded into OCRAM) initializes DRAM, then it loads bist U-Boot into DRAM (<later EDIT> only after explicit request from ordinary U-Boot console accessible through serial connection or from setting value of idme variable bootmode to fastboot etc. </later EDIT>). bist U-Boot is more featureful (that's why it's bigger). For example, fastboot mode is included into bist U-Boot, but it's not in oridinary U-Boot.

BTW, I think you're right and loading of fastboot.bin (through USB downloader mode) should work as usually.
