Just tested the new kernels, they're both good:

GOOD: 3.14.3-std-00094-g9035cb4, gcc version 4.7.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 
GOOD: 3.14.44-std-00095-g0425932, gcc version 4.9.2 (4.9.2-10)
BAD: 3.14.3-00088-g7651c68, gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5)

Indeed, it looks like a compiler bug, thanks a lot for helping me track it down.
I'll see if I can find out more about whats different between the two kernels 
compiled by 4.6 and 4.7.

Thanks, both of these images work correctly: I was not able to reproduce the 
bug with them (rebooting to the original uImage 3.14.3 with gcc 4.6.3 
reproduces bug immediately).
