Seems to me, these two features are _NOT_ only benefit for intel_pt,
other hardware tracing (e.g. Arm CoreSight) can enable these features
as well. This patch is to document only for intel_pt, later if we
enable this feature on Arm platform we need to change the doc;
alternatively we can use more general description for these two options
at the first place. How about you think for this?

Except this question, this patch looks good for me.

Thanks,
Leo Yan
