Some folders in the tools directory do provide cscope rules. However,
those tags can only be used when I open the vim in those directories.
For example, if I am writing a KVM selftest and I want to explore code
related to certain ioctl in kernel as well as some code in KVM
selftest library, I cannot use two cscope files (one in the kernel
root dir and another in tools/testing/selftests/kvm) in a single VIM
instance. It starts having issues with the file paths. If the root
level cscope file includes tools directory then all of the tags will
be at one place and makes it very easy to browse tools code along with
the rest of the kernel.

I have added some folks in this email who have touched this script
file in the last couple of years or use cscope, hopefully they can
chime in.

Thanks
