Subject[PATCH 6/6] perf, x86: Suppress duplicated abort LBR records v2
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Haswell always give an extra LBR record after every TSX abort.
Suppress the extra record.

This only works when the abort is visible in the LBR
If the original abort has already left the 16 LBR entries
the extra entry will will stay.

v2: Adjust white space.
