cc'd the kernel-team mailing list as this is the best place to ask these
type of questions so there can be a full discussion.

Thanks

Hello,

I don't know where to go with my specific kernel-configuration problem,

I'm using ubuntu 11.04 with a CAN network, but couldn't use my
interfaces anymore after the upgrade to 11.04.

Help of a colleague Kurt van Dijck (active in CAN integration in the
kernel) showed the bittiming calculation was not compiled into this
kernel 2.6.38.

CONFIG_CAN_CALC_BITTIMING=n

He had to recompile the kernel to activate this.

Is it possible to include this bittiming on new releases of the kernel?

Regards,

Walter Verbruggen

This seems to be only affecting the can driver itself and is default y and does
not seem to be experimental at a glance. So it should be fairly safe. But I
wonder from where the upgrade was made as this seems to have been introduced in
2.6.31 and ever since then been not set in our config.

Trying to push up the thread. Ok, there was not really feedback by the guy. But
maybe it is a riskless enough thing. At least for Oneiric, which still has it
not set.

Looking at the option it seems to be reasonable to be enabled. With it
enabled you seem to get both automatic and manual configuration options.
Policy would also normally indicate to enable it. This options effect is
clearly self contained to this network protocol.

Therefore, I have pushed a config change to Oneiric to enable this.
It would be good to get this tested once it hits the archive.
