The correct root device, of course.

And what was the other boot messages?

Did the boot messages indcate that the kernel really created  a  MTD0
device  as per your request? Did you enable command line partitioning
in your kernel configuration? Did you enable cramfs support  in  your
kernel configuration?

This is  obviously  wrong  but  the  kernel  will  ignore  the  bogus
additional arguments "setenv" and "bootargs".

And does your kernel acknowledge this?

[BTW: this has nothing to do with U-Boot and it off topic at least on
this list.]
