Indeed, most of the transfers triggered by the SPI NOR dirver are below
fifo_size and work fine, but some are bigger. The transfers therefore
try to use DMA, but the firmware is not loaded yet.

How is this supposed to work? Shouldn't all transfers use PIO as long as
the SDMA firmware is not loaded yet?
