I have meanwhile found that

mkimage -A arm64 -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x1080000 -e 0x1080000 \
-n linux-next -d arch/arm64/boot/Image ../uImage

and then using bootm instead of booti works even without the above hack
on the Vega S95. Not a satisfactory solution yet, but better than
patching the kernel in a distro-incompatible way.
