There are 2 versions of Octalink, Octalink 1 was the BB used on XTR cranks and Octalink 2 was used on Deore, LX and XT cranks.
Don't have the models at hand but all models before the outboard bearing models use Octalink.
Which manufacturers use Shimano cranks as OEM will depend on the model, for example some high end Gary Fisher and Trek bikes come with XT cranks.
