Subject[PATCH 02/40] perf intel-pt: Always set no branch for dummy event
Date
From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@intel.com>

An earlier kernel patch allowed enabling PT and LBR at the same time on
Goldmont.

commit ccbebba4c6bf ("perf/x86/intel/pt: Bypass PT vs. LBR exclusivity
if the core supports it")

However, users still cannot use Intel PT and LBRs simultaneously. $
sudo perf record -e cycles,intel_pt//u -b -- sleep 1 Error: PMU
Hardware doesn't support sampling/overflow-interrupts.

PT implicitly adds dummy event in perf tool. dummy event is software
event which doesn't support LBR.

Always setting no branch for dummy event in Intel PT.
