Applied and added this to the cset log, please check:
Please note that only from LBRv5 (according to Jiri) onwards, i.e. >=
Skylake is that we'll have the cycles counts in each branch record
entry, so to see the Cycles and IPC columns, and be able to test this
patch, one need a capable hardware.
While applying this I first tested it on a Broadwell class machine and
couldn't get those columns, will add code to the annotate browser to
warn the user about that, i.e. you have branch records, but no cycles,
use a more recent hardware to get the cycles and IPC columns.
