Yes, that's what I thought. But Eugene mentioned, that he boots vmlinux 
without any boot-wrapper on the OpenBIOS targets (except Ebony probably). You 
would loose this possibility, if I add this wrapper and switch from OpenBIOS 
to U-Boot bd_info struct in the kernel.

Did I miss something here? How should I proceed?

Best regards,
