   int rtcan_raw_socket(struct rtdm_dev_context *context,
                        rtdm_user_info_t *user_info, int protocol)
     /* Only CAN_PROTO_RAW is supported */
     if (protocol != CAN_PROTO_RAW && protocol != 0)
         return -EPROTONOSUPPORT;


     return 0;

Both, protocol "0" and CAN_PROTO_RAW is OK. I just need to replace
