FWIW I'm testing this on a Prestera board, so Armada XP based.

I've actually tested this earlier -- csum8 works, but csum32 still
doesn't pass in kwboot / mkimage. Note that I haven't checked whether
the hardware accepts it (I know it didn't like the broken csum8), so
this could be that the csum32 verification code is not tolerant to
your modified headersz.

Thanks for the really quick response!
