    Patch in this message
    Subjecttags: include headers before source files
    Currently looking up a structure definition in TAGS / tags takes one to 
    one of multiple "static struct X" definitions in arch sources, which makes
    it for many structs practically impossible to get to the required header.
    This patch changes the order of sources being tagged to first scan
    architecture includes, then the top-level include/ directory, and only
    then the rest. It also takes into account, that many architectures have
    more than one include directory, i.e., not only arch/$ARCH/include, but
    also arch/$ARCH/mach-X/include etc.

    I am no expert in Kbuild, so, please, review, comment, suggest
    improvements, but at least, this does make TAGS usable for me.
