Thanks, we applied your patch, but with a much simplified version.
Since having <pkg>-reinstall-{images,host,staging,target} was probably
not necessary, we just implemented one <pkg>-reinstall target, that
reinstalls whatever the package wants to install. This allows to make
the implementation a lot more similar to the <pkg>-rebuild and
<pkg>-reconfigure implementations.

for the final commit.
