Here you have used the word "almost", leading me to beleive there are cases
where the handling of TRACE_ON and NO_SYNC packets differ, but the
implementation enacts the same behavior for both.

Mike or Robert, can you confirm that TRACE_ON and NO_SYNC packets should be
treated the same way?

Leo, if handling of the TRACE_ON and NO_SYNC packets is the same then we should
treat them the same way in cs_etm_decoder__gen_trace_elem_printer(), i.e simply
call cs_etm_decoder__buffer_trace_on(). That way packet handling in cs-etm.c
doesn't change. Otherwise see my comments below.

If we want to handle NO_SYNC element types, why introduce a "trace_off"
function? Wouldn't it make more sense to call it
cs_etm_decoder__buffer_no_sync() ?

CS_ETM_NO_SYNC, see above comment. And please don't use indentation.
