This is not the right condition to check. Per the SDM, both bits 32
and 33 "may only be set if the processor supports HLE or RTM." On
other Intel processors, this bit is reserved and any attempts to set
them result in a #GP.

This statement does nothing. If HSW_IN_TX is set in pmc->eventsel, it
is set in attr.config already.

As above, this statement does nothing. We should just set
attr.sample_period to 0. Note, however, that the SDM documents an
additional constraint which is ignored here: "This bit may only be set
for IA32_PERFEVTSEL2." I have confirmed that a #GP is raised for an
attempt to set bit 33 in any PerfEvtSeln other than PerfEvtSel2 on a
Broadwell Xeon E5.
