I don't know exactly what the mainline driver supports, but:

$ ls drivers/net/can/usb/peak_usb/
Makefile  pcan_usb.c  pcan_usb_core.c  pcan_usb_core.h  pcan_usb_pro.c  pcan_usb_pro.h

$ cat drivers/net/can/usb/Kconfig
	tristate "PEAK PCAN-USB/USB Pro interfaces"
	  This driver supports the PCAN-USB and PCAN-USB Pro adapters
	  from PEAK-System Technik (http://www.peak-system.com).

(This is a 3.8-rc2 or -rc3 kernel, don't remember)
