    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.
