    Default Gallium3D Clover Can Now Execute OpenCL Native Kernels

    Phoronix: Gallium3D Clover Can Now Execute OpenCL Native Kernels

    One of the Google Summer of Code projects pertaining to Mesa / X.Org is to bring-up open-source OpenCL support with the Gallium3D driver architecture. There's long been a branch of Mesa dubbed "Clover" that provides an OpenCL state tracker for the Gallium3D driver architecture, but it hasn't been usable as there's a lot of work to be finished. This GSoC project attempts to change that and there's already been a big milestone achieved...

    one question for the dev or anyone else that can answer:

    We hit a milestone so how many milestones do we need in order to get a complete OpenCL implementation??? In other words what needs to be done.

    It's difficult to respond before things happen, but another big milestone will be when Clover will be able to compile an OpenCL kernel into LLVM bitcode (a program). Then, extracting a kernel, settings its arguments and launching it will be another one.

    I will be able to give more details in a few weeks.

    Default How hard it is to merge clever with mesa master?

    Do clever need any changes to other parts of mesa stack? And what OpenCL version do you want to support? (normal, mobile 1, 1.1, 2.0)
