You write that the kernel has successfully mounted the root file
system.  Are you sure?  This kind of crash is often due to a failure
to mount /.  How is the CF card connected physically?

You also write you have no initramfs.  I suggest you create one --
then if initialization cannot mount root it will drop into a shell and
you can examine the kernel boot messages.  Be sure to include dmesg,
grep, more and so on in your initramfs so you can look around easily.
