I have taken the patch you did and sent it to U-Boot mailing list.

I will await for a day for feedback and than push this to the github
repository; once I do it, I will send an update for the u-boot-fslc
recipe and this patch won't be need.

Your other patch to change the kernel image type will be applied
together with mine patch once I send it.
