You need to document what this version is exactly. See how other
drivers document things. It's also strongly preferred to use one 
of the existing identifiers if any one is matching the semantics.

Fixed versions are for hardware versions, like ASIC rev or PCB board
id or version.

Your thing looks like a SW message format. It's not even FW.
It doesn't belong in devlink at all.
