I do not know if this is the problem. I made objdump on this srec imagine and
it looks like the sections begin somewhere below 0x80100000 address and for
the srec imagine ( the one that I can load on ) the sections begin after
0x8010000 address. So the problem is here , something with setting the write
address for this srec imagine. Maybe from objcopy ( but I do not think so )
or from linker.
