[PATCH 4.14 42/48] can: xilinx_can: fix device dropping off bus on RX overrun

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Jul 27 2018 - 06:02:26 EST

4.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Anssi Hannula <anssi.hannula@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 2574fe54515ed3487405de329e4e9f13d7098c10 upstream.

The xilinx_can driver performs a software reset when an RX overrun is
detected. This causes the device to enter Configuration mode where no
messages are received or transmitted.

The documentation does not mention any need to perform a reset on an RX
overrun, and testing by inducing an RX overflow also indicated that the
device continues to work just fine without a reset.

Remove the software reset.

Tested with the integrated CAN on Zynq-7000 SoC.
