I have

bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200n8 root=1f01 rootfstype=jffs2 ro 3

Good to hear that your system runs without any LCD despite one being configured.  So you're likely right about my unfounded hypothesis.

What bootargs are you using?
I assume you have at least "console=ttyS0,115200n8" in there, right?

I really think you're barking up the wrong tree with the LCD theory.
I have the samsung (#3) selected in my kernel, but no LCD display
at all, no issues booting that kernel (granted, I boot only via
an external CF card, don't use jffs2, but I think your failure
is occurring before that is relevant anyhow).
