Can you please try out and test what happens when you increase the
size of the malloc arena?  "include/configs/openrd.h" includes
"include/configs/mv-common.h" which sets CONFIG_SYS_MALLOC_LEN to
1 MiB - try changing it to 4 MiB.

BTW: nice to "seeing" you again :-) Hope all is well for you.

Best regards,
