I thought i would meet you at Connect, but last time i didn't come and
this time you :)

Anyways thanks for all the good work you have done for SPEAr. These
are already Acked by me

@Vipul: Can you give these a try? Please consider following which we got
from the last discussion:

From: Arnd...

Thanks for testing out the patches. I forgot about the loadaddress,
which indeed does not get set for multiplatform kernels, because
the kernel does not know the correct address when it depends on
the platform you are booting on.

The recommended solution for this is to boot a normal 'vmlinux'
or 'zImage' file rather than a uImage file. If you u-boot version
is too old for that and you cannot update, you can manually
call 'mkimage' to create a uImage file with the correct load
