This is clearly the best.

Code in the boot rom.  Plus, they likely do much more.  YAMON does lots
of board specific initialization, so when porting Linux to an Au1xxx that doesn't use YAMON, you are going to have to add to the Linux initialization functions for the board. U-Boot is a popular boot monitor that is now finding it's way
to the Au1xxx processors.

... Are bootloaders like YAMON position independent
to run out of SDRAM?

Yes, they usually do that.
