[meta-freescale] imx53 linux-fslc

Hi I've got a situation where I need to use a newer version of Linux 
kernel, but unfortunatelly by default the imx53 stable version is 
2.6.35. I've configured local.conf to use the upstream kernel (which is 
version 3.12):

PREFERRED_PROVIDER_virtual/kernel = "linux-fslc"

Everything is fine except the booting seems like to stop at sdma/vpu error:

drivers/rtc/hctosys.c: unable to open rtc device (rtc0)
imx-drm imx-drm: No connectors reported connected with modes
[drm] Cannot find any crtc or sizes - going 1024x768
Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 128x48
imx-drm imx-drm: fb0:  frame buffer device
imx-drm imx-drm: registered panic notifier
ALSA device list:

imx-sdma 63fb0000.sdma: firmware not found
coda 63ff4000.vpu: firmware request failed

And then it hangs and nothing gets printed. What is this error? Is it 
critical and kernel stops booting? How can I know if it really proceeds, 
because I need to get to login prompt?
