If you have a rx FIFO NAPI is the way to go. For a single mailbox it
adds overhead, if you can read the CAN frame in the interrupt handler.
The error messages should probably generated from NAPI, too. Especially
the I'm-the-only-CAN-node-on-the-net-and-get-no-ACK error message.

However IIRC David said that every new driver should implement NAPI.
