u-boot can only load root filesystem in ram as ramdisk, i'm not sure but I think is
u-boot have nothing to do with cramfs, it is linux which boot the root filesystem.
You must store the cramfs in flash, give the root path parameter in u-boot and go.
There is a new nice description in DULG  9.6. Root File System: Design and Building which
describes how you make your root file systems.

I hope I could help you
