Bhupesh Sharma - Feb. 11, 2011, 10:17 a.m.
Bosch C_CAN controller is a full-CAN implementation which is compliant
to CAN protocol version 2.0 part A and B. Bosch C_CAN user manual can be
obtained from:
http://www.semiconductors.bosch.de/media/en/pdf/ipmodules_1/
c_can/users_manual_c_can.pdf

This patch adds the support for this controller.
The following are the design choices made while writing the controller
driver:
1. Interface Register set IF1 has be used only in the current design.
2. Out of the 32 Message objects available, 16 are kept aside for RX
   purposes and the rest for TX purposes.
3. NAPI implementation is such that both the TX and RX paths function
   in polling mode.

Changes since V6:
1. Added check for calling netif_stop_queue() in case next TX object
   is busy.
2. Added logic *not* to copy data to rx'ed RTR frames.
3. Moved enums, defines and structs present in c_can.h file to the respective
   c-file where they are actually used.
4. Corrected message object busy status routine by using a better name
   and design approach.
5. Moved *set_bittiming* call to the *c_can_chip_config* function.

Thanks for your contribution. As soon as the patch is accepted, I will
send a patch for the PCH CAN.

Actually, I'm reverting because this causes build regressions:

ERROR: "clk_get_rate" [drivers/net/can/c_can/c_can_platform.ko] undefined!

Oops.. I will send a v8 to correct this compilation issue a.s.a.p.

I realized the problem happens when one compiles c_can files for x86 platform.
As I have a ARM based platform, I get the "clk_get_rate", "clk_get" and
"clk_put" definitions correctly when I perform the build operations.

Now there can be two approaches to solve this issue:
1. Restrict C_CAN build only for ARM based platforms by adding the
dependency "depends on HAVE_CLK" in the Kconfig file for C_CAN.
For e.g. see the I2C_DESIGNWARE case: 
http://lxr.linux.no/linux+v2.6.31/drivers/i2c/busses/Kconfig#L329

2. Add #if defined(CONFIG_HAVE_CLK) macros to protect this code in "c_can_platform.c"
For e.g. see: http://lxr.linux.no/linux+v2.6.31/drivers/serial/sh-sci.c#L1085

IMHO, approach 2 seems better as it will allow C_CAN to work on x86 platforms
as well which will suit Intel TopCliff platform also.

Please let me know your views on the same and I will send a v8 accordingly.

Regards,
Bhupesh

#2 is definitely better.

+ * objects whose partitioning is defined by C_CAN_MSG_OBJ_RX_SPLIT.
+ *

+ * approach while re-activating a message object to receive further
+ * frames:
+ * - if the current message object number is lower than
+ *   C_CAN_MSG_RX_LOW_LAST, do not clear the NEWDAT bit while clearing
+ *   the INTPND bit.
+ * - if the current message object number is equal to
+ *   C_CAN_MSG_RX_LOW_LAST then clear the NEWDAT bit of all lower
+ *   receive message objects.
+ * - if the current message object number is greater than
+ *   C_CAN_MSG_RX_LOW_LAST then clear the NEWDAT bit of
