Hmm, does the u-boot really uncompress images here?
letux_mipsbook_defconfig has CONFIG_KERNEL_GZIP=y. That looks like a
self-compressed kernel.
Would be interesting to try with CONFIG_KERNEL_LZMA=y Well, it take a
bit longer to decompress.

hmm, was the dtb appended correctly? I think it has to be appended to
the zImage and then a uImage has to be created out of that.
