I have done further investigation with bootelf and zImage.elf (from
u-boot) and it seems to be that the system fails during image
uncompression: The last command executed is: r = zlib_inflate(&s,
Z_FINISH); /* file: ./arch/ppc/boot/common/misc-common.c */

zlib_inflate function code is in ./lib/zlib_inflate/inflate.c
