SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 1/3] can: m_can: Make hclk optional

I also agree in this point.
However, there's a problem I want to point out:

The M_CAN can only function correctly, if the condition
'hclk >= cclk' holds true.

The internal clock domain crossing can fail if this condition
is violated.

I thought about adding the condition to the driver to ensure
correct operation. But I had some problems:

1. Determine the clock rates:
    The devices you've mentioned above don't have an assigned
    hclk. Is there still a possibility to get the clock frequency?

2. What to do if 'hclk < cclk'?
    Is there a general way to process such an error? - I think not.
    Is a simple warning in case of an error enough?

Is there a way of ensuring that the condition is always met at all?

I think it is quite unlikely that the condition is violated, because
devices that actually run Linux usually have (bus) clock rates that
are high enough to ensure the correct operation.

Would it be safe to just ignore this possible fault?

Regards

Mario
