It's worth a try.  Also, since it seems to be a random corruption issue, 
make sure that no DMA is left running by the firmware (try resetting the 
CPM (though you'll have to turn off the early udbg output)), that you're 
not trying to use more memory than you have, etc.  Try dumping various 
registers to see if anything significant is different compared to 2.6.19.

If none of that helps, then I'm out of ideas as far as debug-by-email

You turned off too much. :-)
Turn kallsyms back on, so you get symbols in crash dumps.
