bootz requires you to give the filesize for the raw initrd. e.g.
	load $kernel_addr_r kernel
	load $fdt_addr_r
	load $ramdisk_addr_r
	bootz ${kernel_addr_r} ${ramdisk_addr_r}:${filesize} ${fdt_addr_r}

The ":${filesize}" is what I mean, it is implicitly set by load (and
similar commands) which is why initrd is loaded last in the above, so it
doesn't get clobbered.
