Bug#810828: flash-kernel: update kernel address for Linkstation LS-WTGL

I don't fully grok this stuff either but I think this patch is not the
right solution.

The log you sent shows:

bootcmd=ide reset; ext2load ide 0:1 0x00100000 /$(kernel); ext2load ide 0:1 0x00800000 /$(initrd); setenv bootargs $(bootargs_base) $(bootargs_root) $(bootargs_debug) $(buffalo_ver); bootm 0x00100000 0x00800000

So the kernel is loaded to 0x00100000 and the ramdisk to 0x00800000

Your patch sets the kernel load address to 0x00c08000.  So u-boot will
still load the kernel to 0x00100000 but then (I guess) it's
uncompressed at 0x00c08000.  The problem is that 0x00c08000 is only 4
MB after the start of the ramdisk (0x00800000), which doesn't leave a
lot of space for the ramdisk.

You can change initramfs-tools from MODULES=dep to MODULES=most,
generate and I suspect it wouldn't boot.

Can you try if something like 0x01a08000 works?

BTW, I assume we need to change this for all Linkstation devices.
