Have you looked at ?
It sounds as though it describes exactly what you're proposing. I.e.,
comment out "#define HAVE_TAGCACHE" in config-[whatever] and modify
tools/configure so as to build rombox.ucl by uncommenting "archosrom=..."
for your target.

As to whether or not you can then successfully cram the resulting
rombox.ucl into the ROM, I've no idea.
