I think I have a misunderstand of " always set "use GPA for processor tracing" in secondary execution control if it can be ".
"use GPA for processor tracing" can't be set in SYSTEM mode even if hardware can set this bit. Because guest will still think this a GPA address and translate by EPT. In fact, RTIT_OUTPUT_BASE will always a HPA in SYSTEM mode.
Will fix in next version.

Thanks,
