No, I think you covered my comments in your latest series:

I don't know about Jonas's comments about using bcm6368, even though
bcm6368 is a much older NAND core. I had similar thoughts when Florian
first proposed it, but I'm not sure I have a much better suggestion.
We're trying to describe two slightly different tracks of IP: the core
NAND controller, which has a defined revision (2.x, 4.0, etc.), and the
accessory interrupt bits, which are mostly constant across a product
line / class of SoCs and aren't really versioned.

So I guess I'm OK with the usage of the bcm6368 compatible string.
