T1024 QUICC Engine

I am considering using the UART of UCC1 in the QUICC engine instead of the DUART controllers on the T1024.  I need a UART that can automatically populate RX buffers with no processor (PowerPC core) intervention.  This is a requirement of our end user. 


My first question is where do I get a copy of the QUICC microcode?  I have the Freescale SDK for the T1024RDB dev board. I do not see the QUICC microcode.  However I do see the FMAN microcode.


My last question is whether the QUICC engine is recommended to be used.  I tried to look for u-boot support and noticed there is little support. I also spoke to a representative of a real-time OS and was told that they don't recommend using the QUICC engine.  At that time, I didn't ask why (I should of).


Thank you
