can: fix NOHZ local_softirq_pending 08 warning

When using nanosleep() in an userspace application we get a ratelimit warning

NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 08

for 10 times.

The echo of CAN frames is done from process context and softirq context only.
Therefore the usage of netif_rx() was wrong (for years).

This patch replaces netif_rx() with netif_rx_ni() which has to be used from
process/softirq context. It also adds a missing comment that can_send() must
no be used from hardirq context.
