Wrong AT91RM9200EK Signature in Kernel Image

Dear all,

I was building 2.6.19.3 kernel for my AT91RM9200EK board for the first
time. I didn't had the "mkImage" binary so I built it using the u-boot
sources by configuring it for "DK" board. But when the uImage boots it
says wrong signature (0x0000106). Though I configured the kernel for
at91rm9200ek_defconfig.

I applied a dirty trick by changing the signature in the machtypes.h and
booted the linux successfully. But I am still unable to figure out why
was the bad signature problem occurring. Does U-Boot writes some kind of
signature in its header which on boot it
matches against the stored value. I don't think so because the problem
occurs after the kernel is uncompressed. By then the role of
boot loader is finished. What can be the reason?

Thanks

Regards
