  Make sure that you have used the 'mkimage' tool to encapsulate
  a compressed or uncompressed Linux kernel image with header 
  information, checksum etc. See the README file in your U-Boot
  distribution for details. e.g. for ARM Integrator platforms:
  mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x7fc0 -e 0x8000
          -n 'ARM Linux 2.6.x' -d linux-2.6.x.bin linux-2.6.x.img
