Hi !

Attached is a patch for armboot that directly calls a Linux zImage. It has 
been tested on my PXA250 platform.


- works only on arm, because it takes stuff from asm_arm/armlinux.c
- set CONFIG_KERNEL_RAM_BASE to where the zImage is in Flash


- I have no clue if the tag list get's correctly set up, I'm using a kernel 
2.4 which doesn't use the tags anyway.
- how can I pass the cmdline?
- Kernel 2.4. clobbers r2, the pointer to the tag list. In your fixup code you 
can have 


but how put I *params to some fixed address?

I guess this is rather ugly, so comments on how to do it better are welcomed
