The counter is for tracking the cs number (number of call to cs
ioctl), while in r600_emit_trace i emit both the counter and the
cs->cdw value so that you have both the dwords offset of last trace
that went through as well as which cs ioctl call it was. The printf of
command stream print both so that you can easily pin point things.
