You should describe in the commit log what LiFi means, not everyone know
the term and might mistake this as a regular Wi-Fi device (which it's
not).

Johannes comment about piggy-backing NL80211_BAND_2GHZ is not yet addressed:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-wireless/patch/20210212115030.124490-1-srini.raju@purelifi.com/

I agree with Johannes, a Li-Fi driver should not claim to be a regular
2.4 GHz Wi-Fi device.
