You can use Redboot to boot a mainline kernel on mx27pdk.

make imx_v4_v5_defconfig
make menuconfig

Boot options--->

then select:

[*] Use appended device tree blob to zImage (EXPERIMENTAL)
[*]   Supplement the appended DTB with traditional ATAG information

Build the kernel: make
Build the dtb: make imx27-pdk.dtb

Append the dtb to the kernel:
cat arch/arm/boot/zImage arch/arm/boot/dtb/imx27_pdk.dtb > zImage_combined

Rename zImage_combined to zImage and then boot it as it were a normal zImage.
