I don't know the deep technical details of the silicon involved, but it looks plausible that the PXA168, the Kirkwood series and the Discovery Innovation series use the same or a very similar CPU core - if Marvell calls this core "Sheeva", it would be sensible that we use the same wording and not some arbitrary decision from Linux kernel hackers.

And that vastly different SoCs need significantly different (initialisation) code is not really surprising.
