I tried reversing the order of the commands and it does boot, but all I end up getting is a pile of gibberish after the kernel is uncompressed and booted ... no boot sequence or anything ... eventually, if I hit enter enough, I get the login prompt, but I am thinking that the communication is garbled as well.
I used the kermit settings from org.openembedded.dev/contrib/gumstrix/build/kermit-setup, is that still a valid setup for Kermit?

OE image hangs on Kernel start up ...
Try executing the setenv before the fatload (leave out the rw) and then
bootm a2000000. This works for me.
