This elf file is position-independent and can be loaded to any location. We can add a simple script to handle it.

1. Convert vmlinux to binary by objcopy, the binary file name is flat_file

2. Write a simple assembly file (tmp.S), convert binary to object, the file name is obj_file
.section .text
.globl _start
.incbin "flat_file"
command: as tmp.S -o obj_file

3. Relink. Linker script like this(tmp.ld):

  . = target_address;
  .text : { *(.text) }
command: ld -T tmp.ld obj_file

Would FIT support require discussion/cooperation with other projects
like Linux or u-boot?

What seems to be missing is the kernel image format to be used within the FIT. e.g. look at arm64:
