I will use compatible approach.
We have keystone compatible in k2hk-evm.dts,
so I need to add it only in the davinci-nand driver.
I will add the following:

if (of_device_is_compatible(np, "ti,keystone-nand")) {
             pdata->options |= NAND_NO_SUBPAGE_WRITE;


static const struct of_device_id davinci_nand_of_match[] = {
     {.compatible = "ti,davinci-nand", },
     {.compatible = "ti,keystone-nand", },
