I've build one for you. It's based on the 2.6.33 kernel (tbh, no patches
were added). I've not tested it but it should work. You'll find it here:
You can load it with (for instance) :
load -v -r -b 0x01008000 -m ymodem zImage
I've choose the ymodem upload method but things like http should work
too (as long as the redboot has been configured/compiled correctly)
Oh, and don't forget to load the initrd and launch the kernel with the
commands I gave before :P

the 'load' command is safe as it loads the kernel/initrd into
memory. Nothing should be modifying it, so, after a poweroff/reboot,
you'll go back to the "normal" state.
