I think you should  rework  this  patch.  At  the  moment,  you  call
getenv() in board_init_f() - but board_init_f() is still running from
flash,  which  means  that we don't have a full C runtime environment
(uninitialized BSS, no writable data, limited stack space) so the use
of getenv() is not allowd in that function. You  may  use  getenv_r()

Please send a fix.

Best regards,
