The following patch documents the Solaris 10 obsoletion in the GCC 9
changes.html.  I've based this on the GCC 4.9 text which allowed for
obsoletion of several targets.  Tested by inspection in Firefox.

Ok to install?

As a followup, we should update criteria.html to name
sparc-sun-solaris2.11 as primary platform.  Although mechanical, I
suspect this requires SC approval?

Yes.  And technically as maintainer you don't need to ask for 
approval, though I'm happy to have alook when asked. :-)

We haven't formally defined a policy, but for adjustments like 
that to (primary) platforms we've been deferring to the respective 
maintainers all along.  So, just go for it unless anyone fervently
disagrees.

I know, but it's usually better to have a second pair of eyes ;-)

I've checked the obsoletion with Eric before proposing it, so I guess
I'm fine.

Here's what I've committed.

Thanks.
