Using a different SD card might make a difference. Different cards
support different transfer modes, and it's quite possible the upstream
driver is advertising support for some modes that need additional HW bug
workarounds that aren't present.

Also, which U-Boot are you using? The one with USB support is based on a
rather old U-Boot code-base; perhaps try Denx's official u-boot.git?
