Weird issue that I never encountered since I started using the card in
August...

Get a brand new tree, there have been a lot of changes very recently,
merge of old patches and new fixes too.

Make sure that you have the right firmware too.

Then do a cold reboot, going through a power down, then check in the
messages that the card was found in a cold state before a firmware
upload.
