If fastboot is in the u-boot-image, shouldn't it be impossible to ever damage it? Kernel and partitions are on the mmc but isn't u-boot somewhere else entirely?

Update:
found the answer in your post

"uboot is usually stored in a small i2c or spi memory device".. So until I start messing with IC, fastboot, uboot and bist should be safe..

Nope. I guess, if I did that, the diags shouldn't be able to (correctly) tell my MAC, Serial, Board IT etc.

I'm still tempted to go with "hardware failure". Although main mode and diags use different partitions and different kernel, the error was the same in both of them and the mxc_rtc_set_time "BUG" (as stated in output) with sources in interrupts sound like something that's not software.
Perhaps I could compile a new kernel (or patch some files in the partition) to workaround this stuff (similar to the xbox-linux-kernel preventing pci scans), but if the Kindle boots into a diags without problems, the mmc seems to be fine and simply restoring it shouldn't change anything.
