Which kernel exactly do you use? One of the nightlies? Or some older
version? But glad to hear that it should work. I don't think the card is
broken, so I will try to find the reason.

Now that is a VERY good hint. The Milan complained about low battery and
invalid date during start. But I never thought this could cause such
problems. I will try to find a battery replacement, set the time and see
how it goes!

I will report back as soon as I had the time to try this.
