[U-Boot-Users] Doubt on Kernel Linking

I kept the link address back at 0xc0000000.
Doing mkimage , I did load address and entry address as 0x0.

On my FADS823 board, I do a download to 0x100000.
And gave a bootm 0x100000.

But the system hangs after Uncompressing Kernel Image...
Note: I have compared the bd_info stricture of linux and u-boot . It is the
same . Also the IMMR address.
I do mkimage on gzipped binary image of vmlinux.

Please advice.
