There are the reasons:
 * current Tegra support lacks low-level hardware initialization
(neither Tegra 2 nor AC100);
 * I have no mean to easily recover wrongly burned boot flash memory
on AC100, so I am in no hurry to burn barebox into AC100 :))

You mean does AC100 boot linux or does barebox boot linux?

No, I have no links of info, but I have many links of code :)))
Most of them are AC100 related:
