I agree that mcp251xfd would be a good fit. We already have (theoretical)
conflicts for the xx in the namespace e.g. the MCP2542FD which is a
transceiver without any controller functionality.

Although hard to guarantee I think it's fair to assume that no MCP251xFD
will be released that is incompatible.
