SubjectRe: [RESEND PATCH] mips: ralink: allow zboot
My version of U-Boot complains if I compile out LZMA support:
---
=> tftpboot 0x81000000 uImage; tftpboot 0x84000000 hawkeye.dtb; bootm
0x81000000 - 0x84000000
(snip)
Bytes transferred = 7349 (1cb5 hex)
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 81000000 ...
Image Name: Linux-5.1.0-rc1
Image Type: MIPS Linux Kernel Image (lzma compressed)
Data Size: 1465871 Bytes = 1.4 MiB
Load Address: 80000000
Entry Point: 80344338
Verifying Checksum ... OK
## Flattened Device Tree blob at 84000000
Booting using the fdt blob at 0x84000000
Uncompressing Kernel Image ... Unimplemented compression type 3
exit not allowed from main input shell.

Thanks,
