The Verilog language support in ctags incorrectly handles multi-line comments that contain a '*' character. A common occurrence is the comment block:

/*******************************************
* This is my comment block
*******************************************/

I've attached a patch against ctags-5.6

    fixed by using the C parser's block comment skipper.
