I tried to change the timeouts and it works now. I take these timings from
u-boot. Is there any reason why these timings differs?

Datasheet says nothing about any delay while loop for sending bootmsg.

Here is my diff with the very small change:

diff --git a/scripts/kwboot.c b/scripts/kwboot.c

Now I see that the internal ROM bootloader could also boot from SATA
device - this sounds interesting. I will try that next weekend.

Thanks for your great help Sebastian!
