 The problem is that the failing ramdisk size is not a multiple of 4,
 causing the ramdisk to be moved to a non-aligned location, thus causing
 the flattened device tree (which is located below the ramdisk) to start at
 an unaligned address.

 Fixed by svn 3310.

 Workaround for a quick test:

   ok  : xx  - 4 round-down ;  patch xx - linux-place-ramdisk
