Does kernel config option "Use appended device tree blob to zImage (EXPERIMENTAL)" work?

I tried enabling this, and then used bootm with just two arguments (omitting the fdt pointer).

Can't get the kernel to boot regardless of how I try it.

I assume the image is created with:

 

cat zImage <filename>.dtb > zImage_w_dtb

 

and then zImage_w_dtb is loaded, correct?

Has anyone tried this with success?

I like the idea of using this just because it eliminates the need to manage one additional file in /tftpboot.
