Thanks for your patch!

Looks good to me.

AFAIK, the actual CAN module in RZ/G2M is fully compatible with the CAN
module in R-Car Gen3 SoCs. The lack of clkp2 is merely an integration
difference: as RZ/G2 SoCs do not have the CANFD module, and their CPG block
doesn't provide the CANFD clock (so the CAN device node in DT cannot refer
to that clock anyway).

Hence I don't think there's a need to introduce a "renesas,rzg-gen2-can"
compatible value.

You still have "3" here. Perhaps

I already expressed my feelings about this property in my reply to the first
patch ;-)
