Uh, that's wrong.  The middle part if the target triplet is supposed
to be the hardware vendor.  For i386/amd64 this is pretty much
meaningles, but attaching a new meaning to it would be a mistake.

Fortunately, your diff doesn't really depend on this.  But I think you
should adjust the comments in the code.
