Ah, this is the machine from <http://bugs.debian.org/598144>.

FWIW, the card's bit is supposed to be cleared by the .start operation:

rt2x00pci_register_write(rt2x00dev, GPIOCSR, 0x0000ff00);

But perhaps there is some other mechanism outside the card behind the
switch. If someone with similar hardware is able to try it, the
following articles might help in investigating:

Using mmiotrace with ndiswrapper and the Windows driver might also
help.
