Ummm... I'm not sure what you are referring to.

The current topic of the discussion  (which  format  to  use  for  an
extended   "bootm"   command)  has  obviously  no  relation  to  your

And that the static blob that comes with the  kernel  image  must  be
"fixed  up"  (which  means that board specific parameters like memory
size, clock frequencies and MAC addresses must be  added/inserted/ap-
pended/whatever) has been discussed before.

So what exactly do you mean?
