Subject[PATCH 0/1] Add software TX timestamps to the CAN devices
With the ongoing work to add BQL to Socket CAN, I figured out that it
would be nice to have an easy way to mesure the latency.

And one easy way to do so it to check the round trip time of the
packet by doing the difference between the software rx timestamp and
the software tx timestamp.

rx timestamps are already available. This patch gives the missing
piece: add a tx software timestamp feature to the CAN devices.

Of course, the tx software timestamp might also be used for other
purposes such as performance measurements of the different queuing
disciplines (e.g. by checking the difference between the kernel tx
software timestamp and the userland tx software timestamp).
