You don't need 12 address lines for a DiskOnChip, do you?

I'm not sure what devices you're referring to - do you have a reference?

The flash in those devices is generally just standard NAND flash, which is
supported by Linux. I have no idea about the microcontrollers which are
used to do the translation layer and emulate a hard drive.
