Try again - it's all there (only, the naming is different)!

Execution starts in cpu/<your-cpu-here>/start.S which does the initial
initialization, helped by board/<your-board-here>/memsetup.S
When memsetup.S has set up the (S)(D)RAM, start.S relocates the code
from flash to RAM and continues with start_armboot() in lib_arm/board.c

This is practically identical for all ARM boards, yes (but watch out
for the details ;-).
