    Same here. I compiled 3 kernels with each option with no problem, but
    none goes beyond the "Uncompressing Linux.." message. I am using a CALAO
    USB-A9263 board with the AT91SAM9263 chip.

    This means that even zlib compression is broken with this patch.

    I hope I can work on this too.

    Thanks anyway!

    Cheers,

    Michael.
