All this is off topic here. It has nothing to do with U-Boot.

Also note that a cramfs may fail  to  work  in  case  there  are  bad
sectors in your NAND device.

It does not matter which bot loader passes the arguments - it is only a Linux kernel issue.

You might have a look at the CONFIG_JFFS2_CMDLINE  config  option  in
U-Boot (see CHANGELOG).
