I was thinking about this, don't CAN frames include the identity
of the sender? That would be the easiest way to determine whether
the frame needs to be delivered.

Actually its not unused, it needs to be set on TX frames once the
packet leaves the protocol specific code. Its used for example by
packet sockets (sk_run_filter), qdisc classification, neighbour
resolution, gso segmentation, ...

I don't get why you can't directly check the socket option on the
TX path.
