I don't have a BeagleBone Black but have used u-boot on the SheevaPlug.

The u-boot image has a header in front of the NetBSD kernel, before
running the kernel it is copied to the address that is stored in that

This means that you need to get u-boot to load it to somewhere that
doesn't overlap with the eventual execution address.

Since there is always going to be a copy operation you may find it
boots faster if you use netbsd.gz.ub instead.
