Experience with CAN bus on RTEMS

I was wondering if there has been any experience with the CAN bus on RTEMS before?
It turns out that searching for "can" results in quite poor results. So far I had little luck to find out if there are drivers for CAN bus controllers available in freebsd and which devices are supported.
Regarding RTEMS drivers I only found the CAN drivers for the lpc176x and for grcan. As we are targeting a PC104 platform I don't think they are relevant.

Is there someone with  experience with CAN + RTEMS (+libbsd?) and would be willing to share?
The most common device seems to be the SJA1000, so I will investigate if there is driver available which might be possible to port.

Best regards,
