Subject: [PATCH] can: gw: ensure DLC boundaries after CAN frame modification

The CAN frame modification rules allow bitwise logical operations which can
be also applied to the can_dlc field. Ensure the manipulation result to
maintain the can_dlc boundaries so that the CAN drivers do not accidently
write arbitrary content beyond the data registers in the CAN controllers
I/O mem when processing can-gw manipulated outgoing frames. When passing these
frames to user space this issue did not have any effect to the kernel or any
leaked data as we always strictly copy sizeof(struct can_frame) bytes.
