For what it's worth, I have a WGT634U booting with root on a USB stick
using the following kernel command line:

console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10

I haven't tried booting the E3 from a USB stick, so I don't know if your
problems were the same as those the WGT has, but the rootdelay=10 gives
the kernel a bit of time to recognise the stick before it attempts to
mount it.
