I am not sure. The uImage/zImage has no sections - it is just a BLOB loaded
to RAM and started somewhere.
I suspect that CONFIG_MIPS_ELF_APPENDED_DTB needs some ELF loader to start
The RAW seems to be the same as for ARM (and we had used that for a while
in the GTA04 for the NAND image until we did update U-Boot to load the DTB).
