well, you can fiddle with /sys/, but it does not work reliably.

i'd think rootfs and uImage should match -- else you might get annoying  
effects with modules not loading (the uImage only flashes the boot-area,  
if the kernel of uImage and the kernel/modules of rootfs do not match,  
things may not work as expected).
