CYC packets are not requested by default.

+pt Specifies pass-through which enables the 'branch' config term.
+
+ The default config selects 'pt' if it is available, so a user will
+ never need to specify this term.
+
+branch Enable branch tracing. Branch tracing is enabled by default so to
+ disable branch tracing use 'branch=0'.
+
+ The default config selects 'branch' if it is available.
+
+ptw Enable PTWRITE packets which are produced when a ptwrite instruction
+ is executed.
+
+ Support for this feature is indicated by:
+
+ /sys/bus/event_source/devices/intel_pt/caps/ptwrite
+
+ which contains "1" if the feature is supported and
+ "0" otherwise.
+
+fup_on_ptw Enable a FUP packet to follow the PTWRITE packet. The FUP packet
+ provides the address of the ptwrite instruction. In the absence of
+ fup_on_ptw, the decoder will use the address of the previous branch
+ if branch tracing is enabled, otherwise the address will be zero.
+ Note that fup_on_ptw will work even when branch tracing is disabled.
+
+pwr_evt Enable power events. The power events provide information about
+ changes to the CPU C-state.
+
+ Support for this feature is indicated by:
+
+ /sys/bus/event_source/devices/intel_pt/caps/power_event_trace
+
+ which contains "1" if the feature is supported and
+ "0" otherwise.
