Looking at your regspy output
109.     SAA7134_GPIO_GPMODE:             82000000   (10000010 00000000 
00000000 00000000)                
110.     SAA7134_GPIO_GPSTATUS:           02132054   (00000010 00010011 
00100000 01010100)         

I suggest you change your gpio code like this:

               saa_andorl(SAA7134_GPIO_GPMODE0 >> 2,   0x82000000, 
               saa_andorl(SAA7134_GPIO_GPSTATUS0 >> 2, 0x02000000, 

So this at least sets the directions of gpios as used in windows, and outputs 
the same values on the gpios configured as output. That should work better 
than your copy-and-pasted numbers from another card.

But it still can be you need to pull some pins high or low for some time at 
init to get parts reset.

You also could try adding a small wait time after writing gpio values.
e.g. msleep(500);

Good luck
