My work was based on Zachary P. Landau's, which was rejected from the main 
tree because of the way it modified the core flash code.  I fed all my work 
back to him and try to help with any 5282 stuff I can on the list.
I'm not asking for anything that I don't give out myself on the 
Coldfire/U-Boot lists.

Technically true, but I don't know of any lists that would be more likely to 
know the answer.

Sounds good, it just isn't obvious to me since mkimage -l was verifying the 
checksum, since it doesn't display an checksum information.
Now that you've said it, I see it in the README.
