Series perf cs-etm: Handle valid-but-zero timestamps | expand

Recently the 'Z' --itrace option was added to override detection
of timeless decoding. This is also useful in Coresight to work around
issues with invalid timestamps on some hardware.

When the 'Z' option is provided, the existing timeless decoding mode
will be used, even if timestamps were recorded.
