sometimes sdma firmware load error

Dear All!

 

I have a custom board with an IMX6ULL on it.

 

If the power is turned on and off repeatedly, the return value of the pm_runtime_get_sync(sdma->dev) function is -13 and an error occurs.
Sometimes the symptoms above occur, but the cause is unknown.
 
If you retry after seeing the return value as shown below, the firmware is read normally.
Can I use it like this?
ret = pm_runtime_get_sync(sdma->dev);
if (ret < 0) {
    dev_err(sdma->dev, "pm_runtime_get_sync err %d\n", ret);
    pm_runtime_get_sync(sdma->dev);
}
 
If using this way is a problem, is there any other way?

        }
    }
