The Last Branch Recording (LBR) is a performance monitor unit (PMU)
feature on Intel processors which records a running trace of the most
recent branches taken by the processor in the LBR stack. This option
indicates the LBR format to enable for guest perf.

The LBR feature is enabled if below conditions are met:
1) KVM is enabled and the PMU is enabled.
2) msr-based-feature IA32_PERF_CAPABILITIES is supporterd on KVM.
3) Supported returned value for lbr_fmt from above msr is non-zero.
4) Guest vcpu model does support FEAT_1_ECX.CPUID_EXT_PDCM.
5) User-provided lbr-fmt value doesn't violate its bitmask (0x3f).
6) Target guest LBR format matches that of host.
