No, --target=arm-none-linux-gnueabi does not include "target sim".
Look at gdb/configure.tgt for "gdb_sim=../sim/arm". You'll need
--target=arm-eabi or arm-elf.

Supposedly. If you want to work on the linux part as well,
and if running a native arm gdb is too much for your arm board,
you can use process record on x86 connected to an arm-linux
gdbserver ("target remote ...") running on the arm board. That'll
be slow, but should work.
