- xxx_machdep.c of any evbarm allocates some pmap structure
for kernel address below 2MB range.  PLS take a close look at
#define alloc_pages in the middle of initarm().

- The following debug message implicates your data segment
base is va=0xc030d000.  PLS check objdump --headers result to
see it makes sense.
