Thanks for testing.

Hm, can you reproduce this with manually writing to /sys/class/gpio/...,
to nail down which pin is causing trouble? I once had a kernel bug where
setting one pin caused USB to be disabled (because the usb driver used
pin to decide when to switch from host to client mode without properly
requesting that pin first.), so it even might not be a probblem with the
gpio driver at all.
