There is nothing in /boot once the system has started, but if I mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 I can see a config.txt that includes:
This is what I could expect.
On a quick scan, this appears to be the same as the one in tmp/deploy/images/raspberrypi4/bootfiles - the timestamp for this file indicated it was old, so I had manually cleaned and rebuilt rpi-bootfiles for changes to RPI_EXTRA_CONFIG to propagate.
However, if I bring the CAN interface up:
ip link set can1 up type can bitrate 100000
and look in /proc/interrupts, I see:
66: 0 0 0 0 pinctrl-bcm2835 25 Level spi0.0
even though can1 is on spi0.1.
can you check boot/config.txt and see fi your changes are there in your target ?

Sorry, I meant to add that I have tried adding the following to local.conf:
RPI_EXTRA_CONFIG = ' \n \
dtparam=spi=on \n \
dtoverlay=mcp2515-can0,oscillator=16000000,interrupt=25 \n \
dtoverlay=mcp2515-can1,oscillator=16000000,interrupt=23 \n \
However, this did not make any difference to the interrupts.
Since then, I have manually changed mcp2515-can1-overlay.dts in the kernel build tree (after running bitbake - c do_configure virtual/kernel) and rebuilt the kernel / image. This does result in the interrupt mapping changing, and both CAN channels then operate correctly.
Does anyone know why RPI_EXTRA_CONFIG doesn’t appear to be taking effect?

I am having trouble getting the Waveshare 2-CH CAN HAT working with an RPI4. Channel 0 does not come up, channel 1 does, but it will only send one message (eventually reporting "write: No buffer space available”) and not receive anything.
Looking at the mcp2515-can0-overlay.dts and mcp2515-can1-overlay.dts device tree files in /tmp/work-shared/raspberrypi4/kernel-source/arch/arm/boot/dts/overlays/, it looks as if the interrupts are not mapped as required for the board.
CAN0 brcm,pins = <25> PIN23
CAN1 brcm,pins = <25> PIN25
This doesn’t look right, and seems consistent with the behaviour I am seeing.
I would also like to check the device chip select signals, but I can't see how (if) they are mapped in the dts files.
How can I override these settings when I build the image?
