it's a pity that nobody cared to even point me into the right
direction. I am not aware of having done anything wrong.

Anyway, the issue could be solved by updating the on-card flashed
firmware from 4.0.530 to 4.0.539. With this firmware, everything seems
to be fine.

Maybe the Linux driver should be adapted to not fail silently if it
doesn't like the on-card firmware but instead log an error message so
that people know they need to update their firmware.
