I work at Exegin Technologies, and we have for a few years now, had some dissector plugins for the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol. We have recently decided to move them into the open-source community. Furthermore, a few weeks ago, a DLT_ value was assigned to IEEE 802.15.4 networks,
Two values, actually.  The one you're using is the "802.15 without the 
address fields being padded".
However, the person who requested that DLT_ value might not be putting a 
pseudo-header at the beginning of the frame, as you're doing, or might 
be putting a different pseudo-header there.
We need to resolve that before checking in your code; I've sent you and 
the person who requested that DLT_ value private mail (so we don't 
bother the list with the discussion - and so that, if they're not on the 
wireshark-dev list, they don't have problems responding) about this.
