Hi Paolo,

Thanks for your suggestions.

I gave both u-boot 14.10 (can't load raw initrd) and 15.01 with the
Ubuntu gcc-linux-armeabihf (4.9.2) and gcc-linux-armeabi (4.7.4)
compilers with and without initrd (ie. run loadkernel; run loadfdt;
bootz ${loadaddr} - ${fdtaddr}).  Unfortunately, no joy.

Note: initrd_addr=0x88080000
