Can you post a link please?

What I meant is if imx5 (and earlier) have a working DMA without the
SDMA firmware which seems to be required for IMX6.

Disable it please, add a hint in the source so one knows _why_ it has
been disabled and push it stable. In future you would need some kind of
a hint from the sdma driver to let the uart know that the proper
firmware is in place.

Is it okay to send a patch against the linux-firmware tree?
