can: c_can: c_can_poll(): only read status register after status IRQ

This change “can: c_can: c_can_poll(): only read status register after status IRQ” (commit 3cb3eaa) in Linux kernel is authored by Kurt Van Dijck <dev.kurt [at] vandijck-laurijssen.be> on Tue Oct 1 09:40:36 2019 +0200.

Description of "can: c_can: c_can_poll(): only read status register after status IRQ"

The change “can: c_can: c_can_poll(): only read status register after status IRQ” introduces changes as follows.

can: c_can: c_can_poll(): only read status register after status IRQ

When the status register is read without the status IRQ pending, the
chip may not raise the interrupt line for an upcoming status interrupt
and the driver may miss a status interrupt.

It is critical that the BUSOFF status interrupt is forwarded to the
higher layers, since no more interrupts will follow without
intervention.

Thanks to Wolfgang and Joe for bringing up the first idea.
