Ummm... Whay are  you  doing  this?  U-Boot  provides  a  standard  C
environment  to  you, no special startup code is needed. Did you find
the code in the examples/ directory? This shows what you need to  get
a standalone application running under U-Boot.

Well, if you mess with  the  environment  like  stack  and  exception
vectors  etc.  you should not be surprised when U-Boot is crashing on
