This patch set prepares phase2.c for the addition of new kernel image
formats and then adds the zImage format.

The choice of kernel format doesn't consider the file name, so the
zImage can just be named uImage-GTA02.bin.

This is a bit confusing, but a cleaner solution would probably involve
replacing the table of kernel choices with something better suited for
generating lots of choices, i.e., a callback to a generator function
that populates some this_kernel structure.

Or we keep things simple and either give our kernels a
format-agnostic name - or just keep on calling everything "uImage" no
matter what's really inside.
