It might be worth taking a look at the Socket CAN drivers (https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/can.txt). It’s not the same type of hardware as the RF devices you’re working with, but it is a case where a network interface was created for devices that are very different than Ethernet.

I have a driver for nRF24L01+ (not L0) I'm planing to submit it to
main line but before that I was trying to make it a network device. My
dificult was to make it fit in the ethernet world since it does not
have anything in common to a network card. This one can be found here:

is not finished: https://bitbucket.org/danielhilst/nrf24l01p
