Help text

Controller Area Network (CAN) is a slow (up to 1Mbit/s) serial communications protocol. Development of the CAN bus started in 1983 at Robert Bosch GmbH, and the protocol was officially released in 1986. The CAN bus was originally mainly for automotive, but is now widely used in marine (NMEA2000), industrial, and medical applications. More information on the CAN network protocol family PF_CAN is contained in <Documentation/networking/can.rst>.

If you want CAN support you should say Y here and also to the specific driver for your controller(s) under the Network device support section.
