Yes, and the next call to m_can_start_xmit() will probably return with
NETDEV_TX_BUSY. You should at least add a "netif_stop_queue(cdev->net)"
before returning NETDEV_TX_BUSY, otherwice the upper layer will retry
immediately resulting in high CPU load. Anyway, the purpose of this
return code is to signal errors/bugs in the start/stop flow control:

You usually should never see that message.

Then I'm surprised that you see "hard_xmit called while tx busy" at all.
Are you sure that "cdev->version" is 32 on the tcan4x5?
