Hi Aleksej,
about the patches and the fixes of the bug I know very little. Matthias
had got another USB-Stick what responds with:
umass0: Silicon Motion, Inc. Generic USB2.0 Device, rev 2.00/1.00
- this was the chip what made troubles (and is the same as in the
  Kingston MicroSD reader):
- the small one for the keyring.

On the ftp-server of the Forschungszentrum he left me a compiled 5.1
a drop-in replacement for my laptop. And he also sent the bugfix to the
other developers, NetBSD has 6.0 it already fixed.

For the sources please contact Matthias Drochner, he is the expert.

I can pass you our conversation (the e-mails are in German), but its
mainly about the kernel file, compiling and the dmesg-output (it is not
very valuable if you want to know the technical details).
