I'd even rename the file to local-remote-host.exp.

Looks term "native" can be used for target board file, while term
"local/remote" can be used for host board file.  Comment is fixed.
I thought of 'local-remote-host.exp' before, but gave it up since I
was afraid people are confused by its name.  I am fine with it.

I'm still a little confused as to why anyone would need this board file, so it would be good to include some more explanation and maybe an example. Is it just that DejaGNU's generic remote execution machinery doesn't include the GDB-specific concept of downloading, and so we have to add a specific download proc?
