Christian Pellegrin - Feb. 3, 2010, 5:39 p.m.
This patch addresses concerns about efficiency of handling incoming
packets. Handling of interrupts is done in a threaded interrupt handler
which has a smaller latency than workqueues. This change needed a rework
of the locking scheme that was much simplified. Some other (more or less
longstanding) bugs are fixed: utilization of just half of the RX
buffers, useless wait for interrupt on open, more reliable reset
sequence. The MERR interrupt is not used anymore: it overloads the CPU
in error-passive state without any additional information. One shot mode
is disabled because it's not clear if it can be handled efficiently on
this CAN controller.
