That's strange because DPAA2 firmware should be included into UEFI built from
lx2160a_uefi:

https://github.com/SolidRun/edk2-platforms/blob/edk2-stable202102-lx2160acex7/Platform/SolidRun/LX2160aCex7/LX2160aCex7.fdf#L252

I assumed that there might be any output that firmware has been loaded correctly
at least.
