CAN Module: Entering Configuration Mode

I have another question related to the CAN module of the BF548.


Under which condition does the module enter the configuration

mode, once I have the the CCR bit in the control register?

I guess it waits for the current message on the CAN bus to complete,

if there is one.


Does it always enter the configuration mode, or is there a possibility

that it could wait forever (e.g. if there's a corrupt message) coming



I'm asking this, because if there's a possibility for the module to wait

forever, I'd have to add a timeout. But if I don't know the conditions

for a successful entering the configuration mode, I can't set a sensible

timeout value.
