Sorry, gut reaction, it only touches perf_session code, it can be left
for later to figure out if that auxtrace fits better in 'struct
perf_evlist' or even 'struct machine', as perf_session is about a
'perf.data' file, i.e. post processing.

But I think that processing intel PT events _as they are generated_ (in
fact as fast as possible, as there is buffering, etc), i.e. a la 'perf
trace' or 'perf top' will be difficult/impossible, given its volume...
But perhaps with some filtering/narrowing... anyway, will leave this for
later, applying this patch.
