It seems so. I only have one single LPC2294 here and it definitely don't works
like written on page 16 of the application note. The RM bit is not set, so
controller dont't go into reset mode and also the TX RX counters are not
changed. I would not have put so much time into this patch if the CAN
controller would have worked the way it should.

I think CAN.5 has nothing to do with the problem I see - this is something

Manually entering reset mode via lpc2xxx_enter_reset_mode() is not a problem.
The problem is, that the controller does not automatically enters reset mode in
case of a bus off condition (bus error). lpc2xxx_enter_reset_mode() works fine
and controller properly enters reset mode.

Ok. Shall I change the patch and make the code conditional via a CDL option?
That would be o.k. for me as long as no one confirmed that this problem exists
for other LPCxxxx devices?
