The userspace needs to know where to put the "sink_id" in. (in this case
the driver expects it in attr.config2). So having this exposed in "format"
helps us to expose this information to all users (not just the perf tool, where
we hard-code it).

As I said, I understand the complexity of the modularization effort. However
it would be good to be future proof than figure this out the hard way when we
get there and we don't loose much except a few bytes in the coresight_device.
