Subject[PATCH] x86-64 add Intel PEBS and BTS cpufeature bits and detection
Hello,

Here is a small patch that adds two cpufeature bits to represent
Intel's Precise-Event-Based Sampling (PEBS) and Branch Trace Store
(BTS) features. Those features can be found on Intel P4 and Core 2
processors among others and can be used by perfmon. This patch is
for x86-64.

changelog:
- add CPU_FEATURE_PEBS and CPU_FEATURE_BTS
- add feature detection code
