Keir has fixed this.

Are you sure it gets into an endless loop?  Because you indicated
earlier that it does find both cards, so it should find the 2nd
card after a long stream of tw_check_bits/tw_poll_status messages.
Because the interesting part will be after it found both cards and
tries to use them...  At least PCI setup und interrupt routing
looks allright.

You need to enable the serial drivers (on by default) and there's
a console on serial line just next to it.  The syntax for the
command line is: console=ttyS0,115200n8
I don't know if a com1= option is supported...

Please try to get the output after the endless loop or confirm that
it doesn't find the 2nd card without TW_DEBUG set.
