The Fixes tag of 99d173fbe894 ("can: m_can: fix iomap_read_fifo() and
iomap_write_fifo()") is off AFAICT, the actual breakage happened with
812270e5445b ("can: m_can: Batch FIFO writes during CAN transmit") and
1aa6772f64b4 ("can: m_can: Batch FIFO reads during CAN receive");
reverting these two patches fixes the regression.
I just sent a patch for m_can_pci that applies the same fix that was
done in m_can_platform in 99d173fbe894, and verified that this makes
CAN communication work on Elkhart Lake with Linux 5.15.y together with
my other patches.
