The table in simtest-howto.html could show the triples used for builds
and also the architecture name that is used in the new file
(backends.html?), with a link to the new file.  The new file could
mention in one place (i.e., not in the table) that targets that have
simulators can be tested via the instructions in simtest-howto.html.
