Thank you all for the hints. I figured out how to modify the link
script to generate RAM image. Since u-boot is already relocated to
RAM, the sections for reset vector and bootpg are essentially useless.
So I just deleted the definitions related to these two sections.

  .resetvec 0xFFFFFFFC :
  } = 0xffff

  .bootpg 0xFFFFF000 :
    cpu/ppc4xx/start.o	(.bootpg)
  } = 0xffff

And I got my symbol files for WindRiver ICE.
