I hope you're not trying to use the uImage build for i.MX53 on a i.MX6
platform? Apart from u-boot, the kernel, as well as Genode's core
process, and drivers are hardly bound not only to the SoC (i.MX53 or
i.MX6), but also to the board the SoC is built in. So you can't just run
the same image built for i.MX53 Quickstart board without modifications
on some i.MX6 board.
