They look like a beginning of a K&R style function definition:

  foo (bar, baz)
    type1 bar;
    type2 baz;

This tricks etags into the state where it looks for the end of the
function, and ignores everything until that point.

One possible remedy would be to teach etags about the special macro
ENUM_BF; I will look into that when I have time.  But there's trickier
stuff in lisp.h that won't be helped even by that.
