Quick review of the dissector.
hexVal() has to go. Wireshark provides all the stuff you need.
val = hexVal() needs to be replaces by tvb_get_ntohl().
(check_col(pinfo->cinfo, COL_...)) checks are not required anymore.
Don't proto_tree_add_text() and then try to add the value as a hidden filter.
Setup the proper header fields and let Wireshark do the work calling
proto_tree_add_item().
You try to do encapsulated packet type detection yourself, why not kickback the
new_tvb to the frame dissector?
The header fields: These are not FT_UINT8, they're FT_UINT32. Also make the
Blurbs NULL i.s.o. a random example.
