Ah, good point.  I suppose barebox could check that it doesn't try to
relocate on top of itself while running.

Here's what I was thinking.  multi and single pbl should work, getting
the size (data+bss) from the compressed data's size word.  Non-pbl and
PBL main barebox know the data via the linker symbols.

Subject: [PATCH] Include BSS in the size appended to compressed barebox

In a PBL config the compressed main barebox image includes the
uncompressed size as a LE 32-bit word at the end of the compressed
image.  This allows the pbl to know how much space the main barebox
will need.  But this value alone is not correct, as the image also
needs BSS space which, being all zero, is not actually stored in the
compressed image.

While the BSS space could be estimated, it is important that both the
PBL and the main barebox use the same value.

To fix this, when making the barebox.z compressed data for the PBL,
include BSS in the size word.  Now the PBL knows the size it needs.

The main boxbox image (both in PBL and non-PBL modes) already knows
the correct values as they are embedded in the binary directly by the
linker, and are used elsewhere like setup_c() and
mem_malloc_resource().
