In case of ELF .arm attributes contains tags providing information on underlying CPU specification used. Thats only for the inferior being debugged but actually knowing which target we are running on, like for example if we want to figure out if we are running on a armv7 or armv8 hardware thats not decoded by LLDB right now.
For user space applications dont want to know that either.

So triple is just architecture-vendor-platform-* but for detailed information we have to populate arch specification structure after decoding the binary which is something we need to do in future.

Right now we can distingusih between hard and soft float based on ABI information in elf. But cant really tell if hard float is legacy VFP or neon.
