Thanks for reviewing.

As discussed with Adrian in another email for intel-pt, it's safe to
remove NULL checking for session->itrace_synth_opts after I reviewed the
code for report/script/inject. So I'm planning to apply the same change
for cs-etm code.

If you have concern for this, please let me know.

Thanks,
Leo Yan
