[En-Nut-Discussion] RFC: CAN Bus driver buffer handling

I'm currently writing a CAN bus driver for the SAM7x and try to reuse
the same API the other platforms (ATMega with SJA1000 / AT90CAN) use.
I noticed that both mentioned drivers implement their own buffer
structure for rx / tx buffering. Both are based on the same concept.
I'd better like a common concept for can bus buffering and would like to
implement a can bus buffer api in dev/can_dev.c which might be used
commonly by all drivers. I'd add a rx and tx buffer pointer to the
This concept would also allow to have multiple can bus drivers in one
PS: I could adapt sja1000.c accordingly. But atcan.c (AT90CAN driver)
directly includes the buffer handling into the interrupt routine so I'd
like to ask henrik to adapt his driver.
