It goes into the free region, not the reserved one. RedBoot won't let you put anything into the reserved region.

The gzimage file contains a small executable that unzips the kernel into

And it's really slow. Comparing the speed of the default Linux image shipped with TS7200 with the NetBSD gsimg is painful.
