Ok, I have done more testing focusing on this specific point and
confirmed we indeed don't need to disable module-card-restore. With
the 60s timeout the headset was able to connect successfully 6 times
in a row. So for now the only open point is if there is any better fix
for these headsets than increasing the timeout.
