[PATCH] --target-help: align with --help=target

Hi.

Before the patch we have:

$ gcc-11 --help | grep target-help
   --target-help            Display target specific command line options.
$ gcc-11 --help=common | grep target-help
   --target-help               Alias for --help=target.

and --target-help prints undocumented options (that was reported in the PR).

After my change we do:

$ gcc --help | grep target-help
   --target-help            Display target specific command line options (including assembler and linker options).
$ gcc --help=common | grep target-help
   --target-help               Display target specific command line options (including assembler and linker options).

and the undocumented options are not printed.

Ready to be installed after tests?
Thanks,
Martin
