Thanks for asking.
I don't think anyone is using (has ever used ?) Barebox on these architectures.
I do have a product which uses Barebox and a NIOS2 in the field.
It's working for 10+ years already but will never be updated.
I think you can drop support for them. I won't work on this myself.
Let's wait for Antony's view on this.
