SystemACE on Kernel 2.6

The mark of BRAM is good at bootloop.
Priority is given to specified initial pc if -start_address is specified
by an opt file. Before starting a Linux kernel, can TestApp_Memory or a
TestApp_Peripheral program be started from CF?

The opt file which I am using is as follows.

-hw implementation/download.bit
-ace cfboot.ace
-board ml405
-target ppc_hw
-elf zImage.elf
-start_address 0x00400000
