As I said, I used Jeff Doozan's script to update my uboot, which also
sets to boot parameters.

I have:
usb_set_bootargs=setenv bootargs console=$console root=$usb_root
rootdelay=$usb_rootdelay rootfstype=$usb_rootfstype $mtdparts

usb_bootcmd=run usb_init; run usb_set_bootargs; run usb_boot

usb_boot=mw 0x800000 0 1; ext2load usb $usb_device 0x800000
/boot/uImage; if ext2load usb $usb_device 0x1100000 /boot/uInitrd;
then bootm 0x800000 0x1100000; else bootm 0x800000; fi

(usb_device is set to 0:1 by usb_scan)

bootcmd=usb start; run force_rescue_bootcmd; run ubifs_bootcmd; run
usb_bootcmd; usb stop; run rescue_bootcmd; run pogo_bootcmd; reset

(I copied only the usb_bootcmd part, as it is the only relevant one here)

I have tried to add netconsole parameters to usb_set_bootargs, with no effect.
