Note that the default 0x400... is the link address of the zImage wrapper 
rather than the one of THE kernel.

Currently the link address seems to be hard-coded into
(a shell script). Since long ago I'm wondering why the maintainers did 
that. But I guess there is a reason, because it wasn't that way in the 
old arch/ppc days ;-) ...

Is configuring the zImage-piggy-back-loader through menuconfig & co evil?
