if i mkimage without compressing, kernel can run correct, the command
is as follow
./tools/mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none-a 0x30000000
-e0x30008000 -n "Linux" -d vmlinux  uImage

but i want to create a compressed uImage,i use commands like these,it
stop at "starting kernel..."
arm-linux-objcopy -O binary -R.note -R.comment -S vmlinux linux.bin
gzip -9 linux.bin
./tools/mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C gzip -a 0x30008000
-e0x30008000 -n "Linux" -d linux.bin.gz  uImage

i think the second method should run well,and i see the same example
in the Readme of u-boot src.

any hints are appreciate.
