finally I got it working!
versions/revisions I use: libpayload r3640, filo r80, coreboot r912
didn't try compression yet but it works for me ONLY with preparsed
payload (and adding it manually, not within coreboot build system)

comparing to your image I don't have zerofill, does this matter?

one more issue I've noticed: kernel boots fine and seems to work ok
but I don't have serial console anymore.. :( do you have it working on
your alix? what could be the problem?
