I think I got your point.
Setting those parameters are not really loading stuff. 
So the setting order has nothing to do with load order, the booting itself
loads the stuff and the kernel gets a prepared list of addresses where each
part was located from the bootloader.

I will prepare another mail to this list replying to Sascha what I found out
about that error meanwhile. It is not much but probably the problem is not
barebox related I suppose.

Thanks for the information.

Kind Regards
