Is it better with the latest X packages?
I do not have the board mounted in anything right now so it is not
exactly easy to test.
Hopefully I will get to this later.
Also it might be that the misdetection only occurs with scripts that
try to determine the card automatically using debconf like live-
initramfs does. At least for one card the automatic detection works
if there is the default config with no card specified but fails if
live-initramfs tries to determine the card type using debconf.
