I don't know if it needs to be in the commit log.

I mentioned thunderbolt.rst because the text at
assumes that we know the terms "host router", "host controller",
"router", "tunnel", "connection manager", and I don't think that's a
good assumption in that documentation.

A little bit of introduction based on Lukas' text could improve that.

Thanks for these!
