Still don't understand why you need a compatible? Is this a memory bus
where you can connect other kind of memories (parallel NORs,
SRAMs, ...)?

If that's not the case, then considering all subnodes of the
nand-controller node containing a reg property as NAND devices is fine,
you don't need this compatible = "nand,cs" (see sunxi-nand bindings
[1]).

If the bus is generic and can be attached non-NAND devices, I'd
recommend looking at atmel's binding [2], because you're likely to
have one instance of the NAND controller logic for all NAND devices
connected on this bus.
And more importantly, if the bus a generic, the node should not be
named nand or nand-controller, and the compatible should not contain
'nandc' in it.
