[meta-freescale] [meta-fsl-arm-extra][PATCH 0/2] Use zImage for Wandboard

These two patches go together.  The first one changes KERNEL_IMAGETYPE to
zImage.  This causes the kernel build to produce and install a zImage 
rather than a uImage (U-boot formatted kernel image).  uImage requires
that LOADADDR be assigned during kernel build, and that it be the same
as the default loadaddr in the u-boot environment.  This change simplifies
the process by reducing the need for LOADADDR entirely, allowing u-boot to
load zImage anywhere.

The second patch changes the default u-boot environment to use zImage via 
a bbappend and patch to u-boot-fslc.

These have been tested to work with 3.0.35 kernels, as well as 3.10.17 
kernels with flattened device trees.
