I think you can get almost the same boot time when you set the
following u-boot environment variables:

loglevel=0 quiet

One other thing you could try is to boot the kernel that is in
/dev/mtd3. You should have the matching modules in /lib/modules on the
sd-card. This can be done with u-boot, I don't if Qi could do this
