Comment(by werner):

 Sorry for the delay - I missed your update among my mails.

 This looks bad indeed - I don't know what exactly is wrong, but it doesn't
 look like any other problem I'm aware of, and the fact that the failure
 happens just after the function gets enabled strongly suggests a hardware
 issue - and one that isn't just transitory.

 For further debugging, one would have to record the communication on the
 SDIO bus, but even that would probably only show that it just stops or
 that there's perhaps some garbled last message, without shedding any light
 on the real reason.

 I hope the replacement goes well. Thanks for the testing, and sorry for
 the inconvenience.
