Can we use include/linux/lora/lorawan.h for simplicity?

This patch is much too large for me to review...

It also doesn't seem to follow the structure I suggested: 802.15.4 has
two separate directories, net/ieee802154/ and net/mac802154/. Therefore
I had suggested net/maclorawan/ only for code that translates from
ETH_P_LORAWAN to ETH_P_LORA socket buffers, i.e. your soft MAC. Generic
socket code that applies also to hard MAC drivers I expected to go
either to net/lora/lorawan/ or better net/lorawan/ or some other clearly
separate location, with its own Kconfig symbol - any reason not to?
Consider which parts can be enabled/used independently of each other,
then you can put them into two (or more?) different patches.

Also please use SPDX license identifiers in your headers.
And please don't put the whole world in To, use CC.

Thanks,
Andreas
