2012-05-23can: update documentation wording error frames -> error messagesOliver Hartkopp1-16/+16
As Heinz-Juergen Oertel pointed out 'CAN error frames' are a already defined term for the CAN protocol violation indication on the wire. To avoid confusion with the error messages created by CAN drivers available via CAN RAW sockets update the documentation and change the naming from 'error frames' to 'error messages' or 'error message frames'.

2010-10-21can-raw: add msg_flags to distinguish local trafficOliver Hartkopp1-0/+12
CAN has no addressing scheme. It is currently impossible for userspace to tell is a received CAN frame comes from another process on the local host, or from a remote CAN device. This patch add support for userspace applications to distinguish between 'own', 'local' and 'remote' CAN traffic. The distinction is made by returning flags in msg->msg_flags in the call to recvmsg(). The added documentation explains the introduced flags.
