Due to missing of SDMA firmware, uart sdma mode is broken,
but it is uncovered by this commit on your environment.

I got sdma firmware from FSL kernel tree.

the firmware only supports imx6 series, AFAIK,
I checked with Freescale imx6 support team, due to
licensing issue, I am not entitled to upstream FSL SDMA firmware.
so seems currently disable SDMA support for uart is our only option
at the moment.
