Speaking of the dts file, I have left the p1010si.dtsi file with
the fsl,flexcan-v1.0 .compatible definition.  The flexcan folks
(IIRC Wolfgang) objected to that as it does not follow the standard
which should be just fsl,flexcan.

How would you like to change that?  Should I add it as part of this patch,
add another patch to the series, or let you take care of it?

Also, I assume the uboot project will need to be changed as well to
reflect the corrected name.

Thanks,
Robin
