No, there isn't.
I don't understand why this seems to be so hard to believe:
In general, THERE IS NO WAY to test the final U-Boot image without
burning it to the correct location in flash (i. e. such that it gets
started when the processor comes up out of reset).
Get yourself a BDI2000, learn how to erase and program flash memory,
and just burn the image to flash; there is ZERO risk involved with
this. Actually it's the most natural way top develop and test this
type of software.
