Assumes a can0 interface with a device connected somewhat 
like "button_can.lua" that is sending heartbeat messages
with ID=0xFF and direction messages with ID=0x42 whenever
a button press is detected.

To add can interface:
    sudo ip link set can0 up type can bitrate 1000000

To start eLua spamming messages: --port=/dev/ttyUSB0 --baud=115200
    lua /mmc/bcan.lua
Should be able to watch along in wireshark.
