[U-Boot-Users] questions regarding entry point

The u-boot 1.1.4 README gives instructions for building a linux kernel
image that is bootable by u-boot's 'bootm' command.  My question is,
since the instructions have you convert the vmlinux (elf) to a flat
binary (linux.bin), how are you supposed to get the entry point to use
later during the 'mkimage' step?  The entry point is contained in the
elf image but that information will be lost when converted to binary.  I
can certainly determine the entry point manually and enter it in that
way.  But how about an automated way such that the steps from the README
can be put straight into the kernel Makefile?
