I would like to have a more in-depth explanation about how this new RAM
script differs from the existing ROM script and the changes to the
state transitions.

This is not an option as long as the SDMA RAM firmware breaks the
mainline serial DMA support. Please provide a fixed SDMA RAM firmware
that doesn't replace the ROM serial script, as that one is totally
