So, got back to it, added that "take it into use" patch and now trying
to follow that documentation:

[root@perf4 ~]# perf evlist
[root@perf4 ~]# perf report
[root@perf4 ~]# perf record -e intel_pt//u -a sleep 10
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.379 MB ]
[root@perf4 ~]#
[root@perf4 ~]#
[root@perf4 ~]# perf report
[root@perf4 ~]# perf evlist
[root@perf4 ~]# uname -r
[root@perf4 ~]#

I am not getting any "intel_pt//u" event, ideas?
