mtd and 2.6.5_linuxppc (mvista) kernel does not boot

I patched the 2.6.5_linuxppc kernel from mvista linuxppc-2.5 tree with the 
current jffs2/mtd code and built an image with the mkfs.jffs2 from utils.
mkfs.jffs2 options i used:
mkfs.jffs2 -b -e 131072 -p -o jffs2.img -r cdkflash/jffs2/

I built a cramfs (kernel) + jffs2 (root) image. Here is the partition table:
0x00000000-0x00120000 : "DreamBOX cramfs"
0x00120000-0x007c0000 : "DreamBOX jffs2"
0x007c0000-0x00800000 : "DreamBOX OpenBIOS"
0x00000000-0x007c0000 : "DreamBOX (w/o bootloader)"
0x00000000-0x00800000 : "DreamBOX (w/ bootloader)"

Partition size and offset in the flash is ok, as it works with jffs2 from 
2.6.5_linuxppc kernel.

Kernel compiled with following jffs2 configuration:
# CONFIG_JFFS2_FS_NAND is not set
# CONFIG_JFFS2_RUBIN is not set
# CONFIG_JFFS2_LZO is not set
# CONFIG_JFFS2_LZARI is not set

My problem is now, that the image does not boot with newer jffs2/mtd patch. 
Here is the log output:
