Gravelrash,

I think the basic Debian rootfs pretty much acts as a rescue system. You could write instruction to install it with addition packages, clean up to remove extra artifacts, log to RAM,... and make it a true rescue system by setting this rootfs to read-only (if you want to go that far, or just keep it Read/Write Ext3 to make sure that it never got corrupted).

Sounds like a plan!

I will write this up once you are happy that the new uboot you are working on is complete.

It is complete.

I'm not 100% done yet, because I had to keep in a few lines of code that is not exactly following the u-boot design spirits. Perhaps there will be a next version. But functionally it is done (everything is working so I don't want to dwell on that).
