    Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] add the netlink interface for CAN-FD Transmitter Delay Compensation (TDC)
    This series adds a netlink interface for the TDC parameters using
    netlink nested attributes.

    The first patch remove a redundant check. The second patch is the real
    thing: the TDC netlink interface.

    In March, I introduced the Transmitter Delay Compensation (TDC) to the
    kernel though two patches:
    - commit 289ea9e4ae59 ("can: add new CAN FD bittiming parameters:
    Transmitter Delay Compensation (TDC)")
    - commit c25cc7993243 ("can: bittiming: add calculation for CAN FD
    Transmitter Delay Compensation (TDC)")

    The netlink interface was missing from this series because the initial
    patch needed rework in order to make it more flexible for future

    At that time, Marc suggested to take inspiration from the recently
    released ethtool-netlink interface.

    ethtool uses nested attributes (c.f. NLA_NESTED type in validation
    policy). A bit of trivia: the NLA_NESTED type was introduced in
    version 2.6.15 of the kernel and thus actually predates Socket CAN.
    Ref: commit bfa83a9e03cf ("[NETLINK]: Type-safe netlink messages/attributes interface")

    I sent a v1 as an RFC which got zero comments, so I am assuming that
    the overall design is OK :)

    Now, I feel confident enough to drop the RFC tag. Thanks for your review!

    For those who would like to test it, please refer to this iproute2 patch:

    ** Changelog **
    The nested structure (IFLAC_CAN_TDC*) remains unchanged since RFC v1.
    The v2 fixes several issue in can_tdc_get_size() and
    can_tdc_fill_info(). Namely: can_tdc_get_size() returned an incorrect
    size if TDC was not implemented and can_tdc_fill_info() did not
    include a fail path with nla_nest_cancel().

    can: netlink: remove redundant check in can_validate()
    can: netlink: add interface for CAN-FD Transmitter Delay Compensation
