Subject: [PATCH net-next 37/39] can: tcan4x5x: Fix use of register error status mask

From: Markus Schneider-Pargmann <>

TCAN4X5X_ERROR_STATUS is not a status register that needs clearing
during interrupt handling. Instead this is a masking register that masks
error interrupts. Writing TCAN4X5X_CLEAR_ALL_INT to this register
effectively masks everything.

Rename the register and mask all error interrupts only once by writing
to the register in tcan4x5x_init.

Fixes: 5443c226ba91 ("can: tcan4x5x: Add tcan4x5x driver to the kernel")
