Here is what I use:

   cpu: arm7tdmi
   mach: at91
   mem_bank: map=M, type=RW, addr=0x00000000, size=0x00004000
   mem_bank: map=M, type=RW, addr=0x01000000, size=0x00400000
   mem_bank: map=M, type=R,  addr=0x01400000, size=0x00400000, file=boot.rom
   mem_bank: map=M, type=RW, addr=0x02000000, size=0x00400000
   mem_bank: map=M, type=RW, addr=0x02400000, size=0x00008000
   mem_bank: map=M, type=RW, addr=0x04000000, size=0x00400000
   mem_bank: map=I, type=RW, addr=0xf0000000, size=0x10000000
   lcd: state=off

It is not extracted, it is mounted and used "in-place"
using the MTD uclinux.c map driver. It is a RAM based
MTD setup.
