Are these the ones in the RTEMS source?

This sounds new unless it is based upon the one in the eth_comm BSP.
Ideally this would end up in libchip/canbus so there is a prayer of
using it on other CPU families and boards.

You are encouraged to submit any modifications to the RTEMS source.
Please make it easy to review and merge by breaking it into discrete
parts as much as is possible.  For example, the last time someone
had RTEMS compiling under the Metrowerks toolset, there were some
uses of GNU compiler extensions that had to be removed.

Cool.  We would be happy to take any improvements.
