Okay, then your approach introducing a bus_type is correct, IMHO.

Yes, it's an own class of devices, many other (semantically) simiar
devices out there. Therefore, an own subsystem for that is a good idea.

But: I'd rather call it it "iec61158" instead of fieldbus", as there're
lots of different fieldbus types (eg. MVB has pretty different semantics
than iec61158)

It's still a niche, at least for Linux. Only few people here ever had
their hands on such PLC systems.
