I do have some suggestions though. 

1. Why still keep packet-sercosiii.h? The only definitions in there, which
should be globally available throughout the dissector code are:

#define MAX_SERCOS_DEVICES (512)

#define COMMUNICATION_PHASE_0 (0x0)
#define COMMUNICATION_PHASE_1 (0x1)
#define COMMUNICATION_PHASE_2 (0x2)
#define COMMUNICATION_PHASE_3 (0x3)
#define COMMUNICATION_PHASE_4 (0x4)

2. In total the whole dissector code has 1973 lines. There are quite a few
other dissectors with more lines of codes.

I would suggest, combining the files into one, and adding the dissector as a
whole. Right now, there are 1315 files in the dissectors sub directory.
Unnecessarily adding 9 more, where 1 should suffice, seems rather pointless.
