There are a few options.
You could first of all see if support is in progress, or being planned. If it
is, you can forget about DMA for a while until it's ready. DMA is nice for
performance, but it's not crucial.
Otherwise, you can beg someone or pay someone to develop a driver, or learn
the right stuff and do it yourself. Someone might be willing to do it for
free if only they have access to a similar board. If you're considering
buying a new one, you could instead by the same one for a kernel developer,
and thereby enhance linux, and help others with the same board.
