Most boot loaders on ARM prior to uboot either allow the load address
to be specified via the command script, or they already load the kernel
to a fixed address into system RAM - using the kernels native zImage
binary format.

So these other boot loaders shouldn't be any problem what so ever.  In
fact they've already been working well with relocatable zImages for
many many years.
