Hi Pavel. The patch which changes the link address from 0x10000 to
0x200000 was sent by me.
there was a overlapping of the load-base used in CHRP/PAPR machines
0x4000 and the link address of the ELF segments. The address used is the
same that Yaboot uses but theoretically any address that don't causes
overlap should work (provide that it also doesn't overlap real-base and
that there is space to load the kernel).

I don't have any strong preference, but I think it would be better to fix the workaround for dumb firmware rather than tweak the link address once again.
