Subject: Re: [PATCH V2 net-next] can-raw: add msg_flags to distinguish local
 traffic

Hello Kurt,

thanks for the patch.

I really appreciate this extension.

Some remarks inline ...

According the code MSG_DONTROUTE indicates frames that have been originated on
the local host. Nothing more.

Only when you enabled CAN_RAW_RECV_OWN_MSGS and you bound the socket to a
specific CAN interface, the description becomes correct.

Better write:

MSG_DONTROUTE : set when the received frame was created on the local host.

ok.

Better:

This flag can be interpreted as a 'transmission confirmation' when the CAN
driver supports the echo of CAN frames on driver level, see 3.2 and 6.2

One empty line would be nice here ...

A good improvement since your first proof-of-concept code :-)
