I am not sure what you try to do here. If I see that correctly you
want to add for some special protocol vendor specific transceiver which
is underneath an 802.15.4 transceiver a new ARPHRD type and even more
for each modulation what it supports?

If it's a 802.15.4 transceiver why not using the 802.15.4 subsystem?

For me it sounds more like a HardMAC transceiver driver for doing the
vendor protocol. The different modulations is part of a 802.15.4 phy
device class. Similar like in wireless.
