Have you tried hardcoding a working CIS image through cardmgr
configuration (i.e., override the empty CIS by using a local file)?

You may not need to to this, but if you do, I don't think current
prism2_srec version is going to be enough. Initial firmware is RAM only
code and you cannot dump it from the card. You would need to get correct
firmware image as SREC (.hex) file and then download it in Genesis mode.
This is the part (loading initial f/w) that does not work in
prism2_srec without some changes.
