Looks like u-boot includes a command to manipulate the environment.
$ git clone git://www.denx.de/git/u-boot.git
$ cd u-boot/tools/env

It also shows that the first characters on the device holding the
environment are probably a crc32 checksum.

Seems to me that this could be a cleaner solution than the current
kernel patch.

However, someone else will need to figure out how to configure and
build that. I'm afraid it's over my head.
