I'm very sorry for the traffic I caused, I found the problem, and I 
caused it for myself, so be warned.

On Gentoo I edited /etc/modules.d/alsa which gets emerged 
to /etc/modules.conf by modules-update (normally during boot time).

BIG problem: I kept several backup files in /etc/modules.d/ like 
alsa.old, alsa.old.zip, but even Gentoo put some files there during 
updates, maybe ._.alsa and the like.

Now the simple but heavy problem: modules-update is *very* greedy and 
includes *any* file it finds in /etc/modules.d/ into /etc/modules.conf, 
*even* if it was a binary zip file ;-))) .

I removed all the unnecessary files and now the card ordering works 
*very* well, even when repetingly calling

/etc/init.d/alsasound restart && cat /proc/asound/cards

Thanks for the help, Clemens, you made my day!

Best regards
