Yes, this side is fine.

In the initial commit, you proposed:

--- a/drivers/mtd/nand/raw/Kconfig
+++ b/drivers/mtd/nand/raw/Kconfig
@@ -42,7 +42,8 @@ config MTD_NAND_OMAP2
tristate "OMAP2, OMAP3, OMAP4 and Keystone NAND controller"
depends on ARCH_OMAP2PLUS || ARCH_KEYSTONE || ARCH_K3 || COMPILE_TEST
depends on HAS_IOMEM
+ select OMAP_GPMC if ARCH_K3

Which creates a dependency over OMAP_GPMC only for a single
architecture. Which means that other OMAP platforms do not necessarily
need OMAP_GPMC for the NAND controller to work. Now, you propose:

--- a/drivers/mtd/nand/raw/Kconfig
+++ b/drivers/mtd/nand/raw/Kconfig
@@ -42,8 +42,7 @@ config MTD_NAND_OMAP2
tristate "OMAP2, OMAP3, OMAP4 and Keystone NAND controller"
depends on ARCH_OMAP2PLUS || ARCH_KEYSTONE || ARCH_K3 || COMPILE_TEST
depends on HAS_IOMEM
depends on OMAP_GPMC

This means any of the other OMAP architectures will compile the GPMC
driver even though they might not need it, which would unnecessarily
increase the kernel size.

Am I missing something?

We certainly do :)
