I developed what you suggested (i. e. remove the SLF_XCMD bit and set the
bitrate, as well as send the "F\r" and "O\r" commands, after calling
the open_candev(),
but now I can't send the close command ("C\r") during the ndo_stop() since
netif_running() returns false. The CAN framework clears netif_running() before
calling the ndo_stop(). IMHO the SLF_XCMD bit then becomes necessary to
transmit the commands to the adapter from the ndo_open() and
ndo_stop() routines.
Any suggestions ?

Thanks and regards,
Dario
