Subject[PATCH 1/2] perf: Allow normal events to be sources of AUX data
Date
In some cases, ordinary (non-AUX) events can generate data for AUX events.
For example, PEBS events can come out as records in the Intel PT stream
instead of their usual DS records, if configured to do so.

Add an attribute bit for such events to be configured to generate AUX data.
