For compressed images of type "standalone" you can use the method
described in the FAQ:
For Linux kernel images this will not work: the Linux kernel expects
to be laoded at address 0x0000; when you load it, you will overwrite
U-Boot's exception vectors - the next timer interrupt would crash the
system. This is why there is a point of no return when loading a
Linux kernel image -- U-Boot will then disable all interrupts, and in
case of errors the only way out is to reset the board.
Can't you use a real debugger like the BDI2000?
