Thanks for your quick review.  Here are the parts I changed:

+Set whether PAD packets should be skipped in the btrace packet history."), _("\
+Show whether PAD packets should be skipped in the btrace packet history."),_("\
+When enabled, PAD packets are ignored in the btrace packet history."),
+			   NULL, NULL, &maint_btrace_pt_set_cmdlist,

+	   _("Print the raw branch tracing data.\n\
+With no argument, print ten more packets after the previous ten-line print.\n\
+With '-' as argument print ten packets before a previous ten-line print.\n\
+One argument specifies the starting packet of a ten-line print.\n\
+Two arguments with comma between specify starting and ending packets to \
+print.\n\
+Preceded with '+'/'-' the second argument specifies the distance from the \
+first.\n"),
+	   &maint_btrace_cmdlist);

For the above, strings are less than 80 characters per line.  Just the trailing '\'
or '");' doesn't fit so I have to break the string earlier.

[...]

Thanks,
Markus.

Thanks, this is good.
