As Kim says, that is ok, but then, I think that the test would better
reflect reality if it tested all the error paths, i.e. if it, in the
face of a missing PMU, would fill in the error structs, that would then
be checked for validity, etc.

So if instead of checking if the intel_pt PMU is present to perform the
test it would run the test, with te error struct passed as expected,
then, when it fails, check that the failure indicates that indeed, that
PMU is not there by checking that routine you used to bypass the test,
