[PATCH 0/2] perf/x86/intel/pt: VMX related updates

Hi Peter,

On systems where PT does not coexist with VMX operation, we silently stop
scheduling in PT events while VMX is on. It is confusing to the user as
what they get in return is a perf session with no PT trace. So I added a
check for any preexisting VMX users to the event creation path, so that we
can tell the user right off the bat that it's not going to work (2/2). Also,
when we do end up with PT events and VMX coexisting, the scheduling needs to
be aware of it (1/2).
