Enabling CAN on the OSD3358

This was actually fairly difficult, mostly because the information on the internet was outdated. This is just one way of initializing CAN. I chose this method because it does not require re-compiling your device tree.

I may post another article that shows how to accomplish this via a rebuilt device-tree, which will ensure that CAN is available at boot without needing additional startup scripting, but Iā€™m still working out the best recipe for that. Again, the internet resources are badly out of date wrt the current Debian image.
