kbuild: a better way to generate cscope database change
It's a problem about cscope target of kernel Makefile, and the cscope plugin of emacs: 1. `make cscope` will generate cscope.files cscope.{in,po,}.out; 2. the cscope plugin expect a cscope.out.{in,po,}; 3. the default `cscope -b` would generate cscope.{in,po,}.out; There are three approach to solve it: 1. modify the cscope C code; 2. modify the cscope emacs plugin lisp code; 3. modify the Makefile; I have tried to communicate with the cscope upstream, but later I realize the third approach is most meaningful.
