Hmm.  Then you have something corrupted.

RELOCATION but that should not matter this early in the startup
because you die before the code is relocated.

Seriously the ELF header information was very wrong.  Multiple
PT_LOAD segments.  And addresses and sizes that don't make
any sense at all.  I don't know where to start but it looks
very strongly like your ELF image is corrupted.
