Im using it in overlays for several raspi hats, e.g. a raspi to click board
converter where I add mcp2517fd or mcp2518fd modules without the need to change
the overlay.

Guarantee is quite a strong word :)

So far in that name space there are the mcp2510, mcp2515 and mcp25625. From the
SW point of view the 2515 and 25625 are identical while being compatible to the
mcp2510 but offer more features. There's a single drver (mcp251x) for these.
These chips implement the CAN-2.0 standard.

Regarding the mcp2517fd and mcp2518fd, the "fd" in the name references the
CAN-FD standard (successor to CAN-2.0).

Maybe Thomas Kopp (Cc'ed) from Microchip can say something to this.

We can rename the compatible to mcp251xfd to make it more specific.

regards,
Marc
