SCFW and cortex-A lpuart

Hi,

I'm using iMX8QM MEK. I would like to use the M4_0 UART (J18 debug port) from the Cortex-A cores (A53 or A72). I will need to change the SCFW to initialize power for the UART for Cortex-A. Also, not move it to the M4 partition. But, I'm not sure where this change for SCFW is required. Or if this is just a build flag change (D=2).

Do I need to use the "imx-scfw-porting-kit-1.5.0" software and can someone suggest what are the changes to be made to SCFW ?

What other initialization steps on the Cortex-A53 side can I use to access the UART debug port without any u-boot present in my image ?

Thanks
