Yes upstream U-Boot would want it too, it's still busted in there.

You can get current Qi for GTA02 here


Just use NOR U-Boot to DFU it into the NAND U-Boot slot... you should
find it is radically faster than U-Boot.  But you probably need a recent
kernel to get the backlight up during boot.

Qi tries to boot from first partition of SD Card mounted ext2 / 3,
looking for /boot/uImage.bin, if that doesn't work out it switches to
trying to pull the kernel from NAND kernel partition.

Sorry I doubt I remember to remove you from cc list after this time.
