Subject[RFC PATCH] can: m_can: Support higher speed CAN-FD bitrates
Date
During test transmitting using CAN-FD at high bitrates (4 Mbps) only
resulted in errors. Scoping the signals I noticed that only a single bit
was being transmitted and with a bit more investigation realized the actual
MCAN IP would go back to initialization mode automatically.

It appears this issue is due to the MCAN needing to use the Transmitter
Delay Compensation Mode as defined in the MCAN User's Guide. When this
mode is used the User's Guide indicates that the Transmitter Delay
Compensation Offset register should be set. The document mentions that this
register should be set to (1/dbitrate)/2*(Func Clk Freq).

Additional CAN-CIA's "Bit Time Requirements for CAN FD" document indicates
that this TDC mode is only needed for data bit rates above 2.5 Mbps.
Therefore, only enable this mode and only set TDCO when the data bit rate
is above 2.5 Mbps.

I'm pretty surprised that this hasn't been implemented already since
the primary purpose of CAN-FD is to go beyond 1 Mbps and the MCAN IP
supports up to 10 Mbps.

So it will be nice to get comments from users of this driver to understand
if they have been able to use CAN-FD beyond 2.5 Mbps without this patch.
If they haven't what did they do to get around it if they needed higher
speeds.

Meanwhile I plan on testing this using a more "realistic" CAN bus to insure
everything still works at 5 Mbps which is the max speed of my CAN
transceiver.
