Please make sure it is tagged stable. There is no hint that this is required
and as of it now, it breaks v4.0.
One question, where do you have the firmware from? I picked the one from FSL's
v3.10 SDK and I ended up with FIFO-overflows so it was clearly the wrong one
(and the built-in SDMA firmware does not work as expected as you mentioned).

Is this firmware only required the imx6 series or also for older versions like
imx5?
