There is no file in the standard gcc distribution.  If
SimpleScalar has a gcc port, I don't know anything about it.  So it's
hard to answer to your question precisely.

Instructions can come from either a .md file or a .c file in the
config/CPU directory used for your CPU.  If those instructions are
appearing in the generated assembler, then they must be in there
