How can we know what that board does?

You have to ask the board vendor. If you also mention what board it
is here, then maybe someone here can help.

Did you try e.g. using only the PATA interface, maybe with a CF2IDE

Did you make sure to use the cs5536_pata driver and set
cs5536_pata.msr=1 on the kernel command line?
