Hello Wolfgang,

Again, please check if you have netif_start_queue() at the end of the
open function.

As said I'm using eec921ac28fde243456078a557768808d93d94a3

However, I'll try further to investigate that issue due the fact having it
running with my lincan without problems and therefore it should be possible
to find the problem.

I found the problem which was then at the end quite simple to understand why it
get stuck due the fact not receiving an interrupt for TX and due that no
reactivation of the queue.

I think that maybe also the hacks in the TX functions are obsolete with the
fix assuming that the repeated interrupts just happen by indirect access.

Here my fix which worked for me:

Please let me know if this is OK for You, maybe You can do some tests as well.

Would continue then with further tests regarding error conditions, however
I realised another small issue with dropped packages at reception.

As soon as You read the first time from the socket and then You stop reading
the packages are not counted as 'dropped' any more which is IMHO not correct
because as soon as You stop reading they should be counted as dropped again.
