This description doesn't match what the code is doing. The code creates
a symbolic link in $(HOST_DIR), not $(STAGING_DIR).

Also, this commit log doesn't explain *why* this is needed in the first
place. The commit log only explains what the patch is doing (which we
can easily find out by reading the code), but lacks an explanation of
the underlying reasons.
