This is telling you everything is fine.  The initial board data in
this case is part of the first relocated image.  This is moved to
the following address (0x200100).  It's irrelevant in this case to
move the data, but to simplify the logic it is always done.  In the
case where the initial board data is part of the flash rom or (the
right way) passed to you by the boot rom, it must be relocated.

This is the real solution to the problem.  Thanks.
