I reject this patch.

The newly added code is not added to any Makefile, so it does not get
compiled at all.

If you add it, you will see that it is highly unportable; for  example
on a PowerPC system you get:

	cmd_bootz.c:29:17: tag.h: No such file or directory

Most  of  the  code  seems  to  be  for  ARM  only  (functions   like
setup_*_tag() don't exist for PowerPC or MIPS or ...).

Please make this code usable for  other  architectures  as  well  and

Best regards,
