I think the 1000 queue length is the system default and CAN just
overwrites that (a vcan does curiously does not). There probably is a
reason for the short queue for CAN. But I don't know why it was set so
low. My guess is as good as yours.

I ran into your problem multiple times, too, when replaying recorded CAN
traces. We worked around it, by adding the txqueuelen to the setup
parameters for the CAN devices. If you use ifupdown (we use a different
solution), then you could probably put it in there somewhere.

I'd be reluctant to change that default without knowing why it was set
in the first place.

Maybe Oliver can help here?
