Emdebian should work fine with u-boot. u-boot is a totally independent
cross-platform boot-loader. You just have to program the kernel in some
flash memory and the rootfs in flash memory, and pass the appropriate
memory addresses as parameters to the boot command (which I assume you
are familiar with?).
And a few other things are not clear to me: I saw that uboot
is referenced on the emdebian website. After the emdebian crush flow is
there a kernel and a file system image which can be loaded with uboot? The
current bootloader is uboot and it would be really handy if emdebian crush
can be booted with uboot.
Emdebian just provides a rootfs, nor a bootloader, nor a kernel, nor
For such things i would recommend you to take a look to openwrt
project as they look like to fullfill your requirements.
u-boot loads the kernel into memory and executes it (and passes some
kernel parameters), then u-boot's job is finished - the kernel takes the
reins from that point onwards.
