It looks like you're right.

When the image is ok, the problematic ANAND is on the dump at offset
0x778800 (it's a multiple of 512 but not of 16k) ... when the image is
bad it is at offset 0x6cc000 (which is a multiple of 512 and 16k).

I'm currently compiling the modules with your patch to see if it's ok.
