Just a short remark: we actually use a "vanilla u-boot" from the
mainline repositories, but we reverted one of their commits
because it makes trouble with gzip for several platforms. This tweak is
not related to any of the problems you have encountered, but I liked to
add this for honesty ;-).

To reproduce the u-boot loader we are using, I have uploaded it to github:

good luck!
