 Without this patch, if there is some platform for which CANONICAL_HOST does not
get set correctly, you get a very cryptic error instead of a failure of the
configure step. So hopefully this patch isn't needed, but if it is actually
needed because CANONICAL_HOST is still not correct, it helps us a lot.

 In other words, I would keep it in Buildroot.
