Except the Amstrad implementation that boots Montavista Pro 3 (2.4.18) ? ;-)

As long as you have a module header called "LINUX" then the PBL will load it
out to its RAM load address and enter it, it'll even pass into it the text
of a module called "PARMS" so I don't see why this can't be used to boot
other flavours of Linux?

Or, of course, the thing that you *call* "LINUX" could actually be a copy of
Das uBoot so that you have PBL in NOR as a Primary Boot Loader and then
uBoot acts as an SBL (Secondary Boot Loader) and is loaded out to RAM and
executed and IT then goes on to load your favourite flavour of Linux
