Hi, we are developing a CAN driver for a bsp, and at first, we are
devloping it in order to use it with the rtems io manager. But for
this I need to use the function rtems_io_lookup_name which is
deprecated(it works but it gives a warning message) I've been looking
and it says to use stat() instead, but stat returns a different
struct, and I need the major and minors numbers that
rtems_io_lookup_name returns.
So, why has been that function deprecated? what is the correct way of
develop a driver like this? thanks!
