cscope works, but unfortunately it cannot be extended to understand the
preprocessor constructs. But it does not suffer from the problem at
hand, obviously.

See
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/1444940195-28272-9-git-send-email-mmarek@suse.com

It used to require a closing parenthesis, so it would not match the
multiline macro invocations at all. Now it matches them, but ctags
correctly warns that the empty string is probably not what we intended
to match.
