How did you get this read to work? Is this in a different system?
Maybe the difference between this working scenario and the broken
scenario will have a clue.

I don't think it's likely to be a BIOS problem. Here's what looks
relevant from your dmesg log:

ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (domain 0000 [bus 00-ff])
pci_root PNP0A08:00: host bridge window [mem 0x40000000-0xffffffff]

pci 0000:00:05.0: PCI bridge to [bus 02-02]
pci 0000:00:05.0: bridge window [mem 0x40000000-0x401fffff]
pci 0000:00:05.0: bridge window [mem 0x40200000-0x403fffff 64bit pref]

pci 0000:02:00.0: BAR 2: assigned [mem 0x40200000-0x4023ffff 64bit pref]
pci 0000:02:00.0: BAR 0: assigned [mem 0x40240000-0x40240fff 64bit pref]
pci 0000:02:00.0: BAR 4: assigned [mem 0x40241000-0x40241fff 64bit pref]

The BIOS left the bridge to bus 02 with all windows disabled, but
Linux allocated and enabled the windows as above, and we assigned BARs
of device 02:00.0 inside those windows. As far as I can tell,
everything leading to the FPGA is set up correctly.

Can you try another, known-working (not your FPGA), card in that slot?
It still looks to me like a problem with your FPGA.
