As has been discussed many, many times before the download address
CANNOT be the same as the load address, or U-Boot will overwrite the
not-yet-uncompressed part of the image when it starts uncompressing.

You got what you asked for.
You must leave at least 1.5 ... 2 MB at the load address for the
uncompressed image; try "tftp 21200000;bootm" instead.
