Aah.. There must be a bug in code in error recovery code. The driver did not accept your card CIS and started freeing resources it had reserved. I haven't tested that code for quite some time, but will test it soon. As far as the problem of not accepting CIS is concerned, this is in the FAQ list (question #1; try adding ignore_cis_vcc=1 as kernel parameter).
