Kernel uncompression error

I just built a 3.2.x ARM kernel and tried to have it boot by a boot
loader (vivi) on my s3c2410a ARM board. The kernel was built with
default configuration s3c2410.
... But, the following error printed on the console:
-- System halted
What kinds of reasons can most possibly lead the error? I searched on
the net and found some answers, but I cannot well judge them:
1. There is a D-Cache patch should be applied, but the message was
talking about 2.4.x kernel, so I guess if there really was a bug around
here, it should already been fixed. Right?
2. Probably the kernel image (here is a zImage) is too big, then the
uncompressed code was overwriting the original compressed part of the
image. This sounds a little relevant. My boot loader was loading the
kernel image to ram address 0x300008000, and my zImage is about 1.9M.
Do you think this is the reason?
Thanks in advance!
I can't go back to yesterday - because I was a different person then.
