No. Basically when we try to load kernel to bootaddr using tftp there is
dtb present at bootaddr+spl_size and its marked as reserved. So TFTP
fails. IMHO post relocation it should not be marked as reserved.
Basically we will never be able to find enough space between bootaddr
and dtb address for us to fit kernel Image and tftp will always fail for
Hope i am clear now.
