In the previous patch, these bits are defined in the kernel's header
include/linux/coresight-pmu.h; at here it defines the same bits in
tool's header.

To be honest, I struggled to understand your suggestions, finally I
think it's feasbile and we can simplify the implementation.  I will
try to refine the patch series for the review.

Appreciate for good suggestions!

Leo
