I guess I didn't explain my problem very clearly. I don't start u-boot
in RAM. The only reason I'm trying to build a ram version is to get a
symbol file with TEXT_BASE at a ram address instead of a flash
address. The WindRiver ICE doesn't suport loading symbols from an
arbitrary address. :(

The thing I don't understand is why changing TEXT_BASE would cause the
link error.
