 Note there is currently no advantage to using Intel PT instead of LBR, but
 that may change in the future if greater use is made of the data.
+PEBS via Intel PT
+Some hardware has the feature to redirect PEBS records to the Intel PT trace.
+Recording is selected by using the aux-source config term e.g.
+	perf record  -c 10000 -e cycles/aux-source/ppp -e intel_pt/branch=0/ uname
+Note that currently, software only supports redirecting at most one PEBS event.
+To display PEBS events from the Intel PT trace, use the itrace 'o' option e.g.
+	perf script --itrace=oe
