The ETR is always programmed with the base address of the "ETR" buffer,
which is *not the same* as the perf ring buffer, since we always do
double buffering. We do not program the RRP/RWP of the ETR (except
for the SoC-600, where it is mandatory and we set them to the base
address). Thus there is no context associated with the ETR buffer.
But at the end of the run, we do read the RRP/ RWP to figure out
where the ETR has reached.

As for reseting the RRP / RWP, at the beginning of a session, is
done implicitly for the ETR (except for SoC-600 ETRs as explained
above) by the hardware to the base address.
