Is it possible to connect a JTAG debugger like a Wiggler to your board and 
single step through the startup sequence? I know that I had similar 
problems with ROMRAM for an EB40-type system. It turned out that in my 
case the memory map of the board I was debugging was slightly different 
than Atmel's EB40 board. I discovered that in the startup code 
(hal_platform_setup.h) addresses were hardcoded for the EB40. This of 
course caused the ROMRAM image to fail.
