I think that simulators represent different class of targets, so they
should be treated separately. In fact, the test is changed for the
simulator by limiting the number of cycles, and IMO this is not
desirable for native targets i.e. - alpha* would run a different test
than other targets.

Also, recent usage of dg-timeout-factor has shown, that adding target
selector to this dg-directive is more of an exception than a general
rule. If the test timeouts on one target, it is quite possible that it
will timeout on others too.
