The error code is -ENOENT, so the firmware binary is not found where the
firmware loader code is looking. That could be caused by the coda driver
being probed before the file system containing the firmware binary is
mounted. Have you tried compiling the coda driver as a module

Note that converting the NXP provided firmware is not necessary anymore
since commits a1a87fa3a0cf ("[media] coda: add support for native order
firmware files with Freescale header") and 2ac7f08e3075 ("[media] coda:
add support for firmware files named as distributed by NXP").
Also there are newer firmware binaries available, see
