I think I have found the root cause:

memcpy_fromio(&__rsp_pa, &priv->regs_t->ctrl_rsp_pa, 8);

This is from crb_map_io(). This should be read as quad word.

I'll change it to ioread64() and see what happens. I don't know why it
even has used memcpy_fromio() in the first place. I guess, when I first
implemented the driver, I used that for no logical reason, and it has
worked since up until now.
