CAN bus stops working, spi issue

Hi,

my Linux kernel prints the following messages for the mcp25xxfd driver:

[ 8454.869252] spi_imx 30840000.spi: mx51_ecspi_clkdiv: fin: 50000000, fspi: 2000000, post: 1, pre: 12

After these messages the interface stops working. I have already tried reducing the spi clock from 2MHz to 1MHz wihtin the device tree, without success. The bus is running at a speed of 250kb.
Prior to this issue I had to manually resize the tx queue size before I open the interface since it randomly resets its value to 0.

Can anybody help me?

Does anybody also know, why the kernel is constantly printing the following messages:

Hi @gandi,

We already have a pretty good thread on this here:

https://www.toradex.com/community/questions/60859/mcp2517fdmcp2518fd-can-controller-driver-errors-on.html?childToView=61191#answer-61191

Maybe that will help.

Hi @edwaugh

thank you for this really fast response :slight_smile:
I have applied the two patches mentioned in this thread and it looks good.

Hi @gandi

Thanks for the update. I will also do some tests on the SPI Can Controller and share my results.

Best regards,
Jaski
