That file certainly won't boot, it's an intermedia file
that is left over from the build process.

You can do one of two things.  Load the zImage.elf as
a binary to some address (say 400000) and start at the
code past the ELF header (g 410000).

Second, you can 'objcopy -O binary zImage.elf zImage.bin',
then load the zImage.bin (say 400000), then jump to the
address where it was loaded (g 400000).
