Like in the OMAP boot problem [1], the kernel change breaking binaries 
compiled on OMAP target are the pmap changes from Aug 6th 2008:

Current from Aug 5th 2008 works, current from Oct 30th 2008 works if
the pmap changes are reverted with patches from and
generally current since Aug 5th is broken -- including todays tree which has
the OMAP boot problem fixed.

Compiling binaries on target may not be what most ARM/OMAP users do, but it
appears to be a good test case for the overall port status, which is not
very good at the moment.
