Subject[PATCH 16/75] perf intel-pt: Fix error with config term "pt=0"
Date
From: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com>

Users should never use 'pt=0', but if they do it may give a meaningless
error:

$ perf record -e intel_pt/pt=0/u uname
Error:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 22 (Invalid argument) for
event (intel_pt/pt=0/u).

Fix that by forcing 'pt=1'.

Committer testing:

# perf record -e intel_pt/pt=0/u uname
Error:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 22 (Invalid argument) for event (intel_pt/pt=0/u).
/bin/dmesg | grep -i perf may provide additional information.

# perf record -e intel_pt/pt=0/u uname
pt=0 doesn't make sense, forcing pt=1
Linux
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.020 MB perf.data ]
