Likely it already works for CoreSight

I specified intel_pt, because if we just say traces the users won't
know what PMU to specify for record. Being too abstract is
often not helpful.

If someone successfully tests it on CoreSight they could submit
a patch to the documentation to add "or <coresightpmu>" to these
two cases. That would make it then clear for those users too.
