Obvious first thing to do is 'make -v cscope' and see what the entire command
line that's failing is.  I'm fairly sure that you've managed to mess up your
source tree or build environment somehow, because:

[/usr/src/linux-next] find [a-z]* -type f | xargs grep -e "--cc"
scripts/  Using "--roles" or "--rolestats" with git send-email --cc-cmd or any

There's only one occurrence of "--cc" in the current source tree, and it's not
relevant as it's part of a longer string.
