Your problem is more likely due to unreliable RAM.
cramfs (due to decompression) works RAM a lot harder than romfs even if
both are in RAM. If your romfs in in ROM, the RAM is not working
anywhere near as hard ;-)
Also, cramfs's decompression actually checks things are making sense.
romfs does not.
