Two possible options are also explicitly listed right below. I did that
in the way it was done in other driver for Cadence IP:
/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/macb.txt
Should I remove all of that and replace it with both options, separated
by an "or" word?

Yes, the ospi is backwards compatible with qspi. However, the sole point
of introducing new compatible was to differentiate between them (which
was previously done using a boolean flag, but that was criticized).
Listing both bindings for ospi would only help for kernels not
containing driver update being subject of this patch series, as both
ospi and qspi are handled by the same driver - just with a slight
difference. I apologize if I got something wrong here.
