Let me have a look....

I think I should remove the read reg_esr in "flexcan_irq_err()" and use
the value read in "flexcan_irq()"

Without the fix, there's a race window that we loose some error bits
from the interrupt handler to the napi function, because the error bits
are cleared on read.

Regarding the upcoming improvement of the can error frames upon state
changes, I'd first like to get this driver merged and then discuss a
solution for the error frames.

cheers, Marc
