I've got a patch that adds 'raw' image support (originally written by
Scott Wood) which somewhat works for booting (but not entirely; I
haven't had time to dig into it properly yet).  It's not suitable to
go into mainline yet.  I'll try to get the patch out to my tree this
evening... actually I've been trying to get my tree pushed out all
today, but other things keep coming up.  :-)

Okay, I pushed my current patch set out to the master branch of my
linux-2.6-virtex tree.  Give it a whirl.  It's not perfect, but it
should be usable for booting.
