I just checked on the flexcan (mx6) and the mcp2518fd. I hardcoded a TX-dlc of
12 in both drivers and printed the raw dlc value in the RX-path:

The userspace shows a consistent len=8.

If we want to support CAN-2.0 with DLC > 8, we have to audit the TX-path every
driver and remove the can_dropped_invalid_skb() check.

I'm not sure what to do about the RX, with breaking user space ABI.
