So do you need _just_ the initrd definition or also the modified
"root=/dev/sda1" to get soas04xo to boot?

If it's just the initrd definition, perhaps there's something wrong
with the initrd selection in soas04xo's /boot/olpc.fth...can you try
commenting out the line:

   " root=mtd0" " \${DN}" expand$ sindex -1 <> if

with a backslash at the beginning, please?

The HAL failure is not obviously related.  Do you get it if you
copy-nand soas05xo.img?
