[SPIKE] Add link to Special:MediaSearch from Special:Search
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I usually want to use Special:Search on Commons, but sometimes I want to use Special:MediaSearch instead. There's no way for me to get to Special:MediaSearch from Special:Search or the search bar. There should be a link to Special:MediaSearch from Special:Search like there is from Special:MediaSearch to Special:Search (including the query).

Adding a link in the same layout and style makes sense to me!

We will do a spike timeboxed to one day max to investigate whether there's a hook from core to the MediaSearch extension.

Would be up for shadowing whoever does this task.

The link should be pre-populated with the search string from the user's search, for example:
