Subject[PATCH v1 4/4] coresight: etm3x: Don't trace contextID for non-root namespace in perf mode
ETMv3 driver doesn't handle the case when programs run in non-root PID
namespace, so it allows the contextID tracing by directly using perf

This patch changes to only enable contextID tracing for root PID
namespace. Note, the hardware supports VMID tracing from ETMv3.5, but
the driver never enables VMID trace, so this patch doesn't handle VMID
trace (bit 30 in ETMCR register) particularly.
