The cpu_id context only exists for the purpose of lttng-ust and lttng-modules filtering. 
(e.g. lttng enable-event {-u,-k} --filter '$ctx.cpu_id == 2'). 

It is not possible to add it as context to the streams, because its information would 
be completely redundant with the fact that all the data is written into per-cpu buffers, 
and the cpu_id field is available within each packet context (which is right after each 
packet header). 

You just need to use babeltrace to convert to text, and while doing so, it prints a 
"cpu_id = N" context based on the packet_context cpu_id field for each event.
