Alan, I got to test this by applying the changeset (Olivier, many thanks
for your valuable hint, I'm sure, I will reuse this knowledge soon), to
the otherwise unchanged kernel, but unfortunately, it doesn't solve my
issue.

A different patch must have changed the behavior/state of some RS232 lines
in the 2.6.25 time frame, since the device still doesn't get any power at
all. Hopefully I get round bisecting it this weekend, but any hints are
greatly appreciated.

As another data point: using a usb <-> rs232 converter, the dcf device got
back to life again. It still doesn't work in its entirety, but at least,
some data arrives in ntpd. Expected is something similar to:
-#--#-#####-###--D--S124--2-p------p-----21-4-24-----8-- (incomplete)
but it reads:
###############RADMLS1248124P124812P1248121241248112481248P
thus, obviously it doesn't get any 0 values back (displayed as - above).
The setting of the serial interfaces was equivalent, but maybe the usb
converter cannot handle the rather strange 50 baud setting properly.

~# stty -a < /dev/ttyUSB0
speed 50 baud; rows 0; columns 0; line = 0;
intr = <undef>; quit = <undef>; erase = <undef>; kill = <undef>; eof = <undef>; eol = <undef>; eol2 = <undef>;
swtch = <undef>; start = <undef>; stop = <undef>; susp = <undef>; rprnt = <undef>; werase = <undef>; lnext = <undef>;
flush = <undef>; min = 1; time = 0;
