Hello Everyone,

U-boot fails on uncompressing kernel If uImage size increased from 4MB. 
Error message is as follows.

## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 01000000 ...
    Image Name:   Linux-3.8.13-rt9
    Created:      2014-03-12  13:47:49 UTC
    Image Type:   PowerPC Linux Kernel Image (gzip compressed)
    Data Size:    4395316 Bytes =  4.2 MB
    Load Address: 00000000
    Entry Point:  00000000
    Verifying Checksum ... OK
    Uncompressing Kernel Image ... Error: inflate() returned -5
GUNZIP: uncompress, out-of-mem or overwrite error - must RESET board to 

It is happening on p1020rdb and p2020rdb boards.

U-boot versions are

On p2020 : U-Boot 2009.11 (Oct 22 2010 - 18:31:34)
On p1020:  U-Boot 2009.11 (Aug 09 2010 - 13:39:52)

Is it u-boot version issue or some configuration issue?
