Have you compared the stack trace and instruction pointers to the maps
to see which functions are causing the issue?  Are they the same ones?

You are using jffs as your rootfs?  Are you sure the MTD is fully
functional?  Did you port your flash configuration to your kernel
correctly?  Have you tried NFS mounting a rootfs and then playing games
with a jffs filesystem to make sure it is working?

As for things to try, compile Busybox statically and work from there.
Once you get that working, you can play with the dynamic libraries,
making sure the right ones are on your rootfs.
