FWIW: Usually (can probably be configured otherwise), the VxWorks boot
loader is able to load ELF objects all the same, but obviously this is
not sufficient for what the OP wants to do: the hello world example
expects to be run under U-Boot, and the uboot ELF binary expects to
start out of some (flash) ROM. Convincing both u-boot or hello world
to behave otherwise requires considerable in-depth knowledge.

You're definitely right about  the mailing list, though :-)
