Add IntelliSense support for the <inheritdoc /> tag in XML documentation comments

We currently use the <inheritdoc /> and <inheritdoc cref="" /> tags extensively in our code base in order to reduce the amount of duplicated documentation that needs to be written.

This works great for the most part, since we generate our docs using Sandcastle.

However, when we are actually developing code in the same c# project as the API which uses <inheritdoc>, Visual Studio does not recognize the tag, or resolve any references.

It would be great if Visual Studio Intellisense could actually do this.
