I think yes it's correct, but I will remove it.

The basic idea here is to introduce a 6LoWPAN neighbour private data and
Link-Layer specific neighbour private data.

Example:

6LoWPAN neighbour data:

The GHC capability, 6LoWPAN contains some compression methods, also for
several Next Header (UDP, IPv6 extension headers, ...). So far I
understand each neighbour can tell which compression method it supports
by a special option field, see [0].

Such data doesn't depends on Link-Layer and is the same for all 6LoWPAN
over FOO standards.

6LoWPAN Link-Layer specific neighbour data:

Like the short address handling in case of 6LoWPAN over 802.15.4.

Yes, I remove it. I think to introduce such layer for 6LoWPAN neighbour
data, we can still introduce it later when we have an use-case. Also with
a better foo_ops structure so we have something like this:

6lowpan interface:
 - .ndo_neigh_construct
   - "doing 6lowpan stuff"
     - .ndo_ll_neigh_construct
       - "doing ll 6lowpan stuff"

and ".ndo_ll_neigh_construct" differs in case of 6lowpan ll
implementation (802.15.4 or BTLE currently).
