SubjectRE: [PATCH V2 2/5] can: flexcan: add CAN FD mode support

Sure, no problem. Please note that I needed to replace "flexcan_read" and "flexcan_write" with "priv->read" and "priv->write" respectively, in PATCH V2 4/5.

This is more of a functionality issue. For example, candump from canutils 4.0.6 never shows CAN FD frames, but should still be able to show the CAN 2.0 ones regardless of whether "fd on" was supplied. I suggest the following separation:

struct sk_buff *skb = NULL;
bool drop = unlikely(skb_queue_len(&offload->skb_queue) >

if (offload->mailbox_read(offload, drop, &skb, &timestamp, n) && !skb)

if (skb) {
struct can_rx_offload_cb *cb = can_rx_offload_get_cb(skb);

cb->timestamp = timestamp;

return skb;

if (!drop) {
if (reg_ctrl & FLEXCAN_MB_CNT_EDL)
*skb = alloc_canfd_skb(offload->dev, &cf);
*skb = alloc_can_skb(offload->dev,
(struct can_frame **)&cf);
if (*skb) {
/* use cf */
/* mark as read */

Although not visible in the FlexCAN case, the socket buffers would be also freed from inside mailbox_read if errors were encountered after allocation.
