Trying to test something at this point:

[root@perf4 ~]# find /sys -name "*intel_pt*"
[root@perf4 ~]# perf record -e intel_pt//u ls
invalid or unsupported event: 'intel_pt//u'
Run 'perf list' for a list of valid events

usage: perf record [<options>] [<command>]
or: perf record [<options>] -- <command> [<options>]

-e, --event <event> event selector. use 'perf list' to list
available events
[root@perf4 ~]# uname -a
Linux perf4 4.1.0-rc8 #1 SMP Tue Jun 16 19:47:25 EDT 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@perf4 ~]#

The kernel seems to have the intel_pt stuff and what I have in the
tooling side is at my tmp.perf/pt branch, will continue after lunch.
