Subject: [PATCH 7/7] can: m_can: workaround for transmit data less than 4 bytes

We meet an IC issue that we have to write the full 8 bytes (whatever
value for the second word) in Message RAM to avoid bit error for transmit
data less than 4 bytes.

Without the workaround, we can easily see the following errors:
root@...6qdlsolo:~# ip link set can0 up type can bitrate 1000000
[   66.882520] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): can0: link becomes ready
root@...6qdlsolo:~# cansend can0 123#112233
[   66.935640] m_can 20e8000.can can0: Bit Error Uncorrected
