This mailing list has very little activity. I don't know and would
normally comment but I hate to see people post questions and then not
get any response at all. Therefore I will comment here in the hope
that I might be able to get you to a better place to ask your question.

The BSS section is normally used to store static data. In a C program
if one is defining a variable with initialized data then this will go
into the BSS section.
int iii = 42;
It makes no sense if the BSS segment is larger than the file size. It
makes me thing there is a data corruption problem. Or perhaps the
file system is full and part of the file could not be written. Or
potentially other problem of which this is only a down stream cascade
failure with a different root cause.

Memory exhausted indicates that the program tried to allocate memory
or tried to fork and whichever action it was failed due to being out
of virtual memory.
I would look to see if the storage filled up. I would look to see if
whatever you are doing ran out of memory.
Since this is ARM I assume some type of NAND flash file system. In
which case I would look for a failure of the storage such as due to
worn out storage cells. If it is an SD card I would try reading from
every byte and verifying that the storage device is working okay. I
have had SD cards using NAND storage and other similar devices fail
creating file corruption.
