The PXA is broken, AFAIK. mem_malloc_init() get's called with 0x0badc0de.

And at least one board (wepep250) contains a workaround in board_init():

 * Following code is just bug workaround, remove it if not neccessary

  /* cpu/xscale/cpu.c do not set armboot_real_end that is used for
     malloc pool.*/
  if( _armboot_real_end == 0xbadc0de ){
    _armboot_real_end = _armboot_end;
