Subject: Re: [PATCH] can: xilinx_can: add support for RX timestamps on Zynq

I've added Michal Simek on into the loop.

Michal can you figure out if there's an undocumented register to read
the free running time stamp counter of the xilinx_can IP core?

Some HW designer successfully ticked the mark [x] HW time stamp support!
But haven't thought on how to use this. No Overflow IRQ and no
possibility to read the free running timer. :/

Maybe it's possible to add the ktimestamp based overflow calculation
there, too.
