u can load image to 0x00800000 and type command to set bootargs like below:
setenv bootargs root=/dev/ram0 mem=128M initrd=0x00800000,16M

> I want to create the linux root partition as image on a fat filesystem and
therefore create an initrd which mount this image via the loopback device.
> Is uboot capable of loading an initrd image and passing it to the kernel ?
> How to configure uboot for this configuration and which kernel parameters
must be used in this case to tell the kernel where to find the initrd im ram
