The Socket-CAN-Core made it into 2.6.25 but the CAN device interface and
drivers are still missing. All SIO[SG]CAN* IOCTLs requests have been
dropped in favor of SYSFS files because most people think that there is
little chance to get them into mainline. Well, I personally still like
them. Furthermore, the name baudrate has been replaced by bitrate and
some refinement of the bit time setting will be done sooner than later.
Apart from that, RT-Socket-CAN is still compatible with Socket-CAN. When
the Socket-CAN device interface API definition has settled, it's time to
adapt RT-Socket-CAN.
