For SPI flash size, the limitation is not how much the chipset can support, but how much the SPI translation feature in the IT8716F can support.
Are you talking about LCP reads -> SPI reads translation?
If so I only need that for the initial boot. After that I can issue SPI read commands directly to the device.
Which is a little bit slow/inefficient. I suspect that using a USB storage device (together with early USB initialization) will give you better overall performance.
Is there some other limitation in the IT8716F you know of that won't let me read the full 24 bits of address? The datasheet is sparse but seems pretty straight forward. All the necessary registers and bits appear documented.
I am not aware of any other limitation.
