I checked kernel with your patch only, and with Tim's patch added.
I did it twice, every time building from scratch.

Btw, with 2.6.24 the card does not work also, it's can't load firmware.
This all started after upgrade. I now have Asus P5Q board (Intel P45 chipset).
I think I should test the card in another 2 PCI slots.
