Subject[PATCH] can: don't count arbitration lose as an error
Losing arbitration is normal in a CAN-bus network, it means that a
higher priority frame is being send and the pending message will be
retried later. Hence most driver only increment arbitration_lost, but
the sja1000 and sun4i driver also incremeant tx_error, causing errors
to be reported on a normal functioning CAN-bus. So stop counting them
as errors.

For completeness, the Kvaser USB hybra also increments the tx_error
on arbitration lose, but it does so in single shot. Since in that
case the message is not retried, that behaviour is kept.
