Is it because there the community sdma-firmware[1] is not free

it's free software or not?

It was in my TODO list for years but I didn't find the time yet to
look into it in more details. I would probably need to track down
the source of the assembly (if it's under the GPL or not) and I would
probably need to spend more time to read the section on the SDMA in the

constitutes source code.
