Beyond the other work that has already gone into Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 (codenamed "Bardu") like improved stats support and a horde of extra features, there is the start of OpenCL (Open Computing Language) testing support.

Pushed into the Phorogit repository for immediate downloading is the pyopencl and opencl-ati test profiles for testing out the PyOpenCL and ATI Stream SDK performance, respectively. The Stream SDK benchmark in the Phoronix Test Suite supports either the CPU or GPU back-ends and with a number of other test options.

This is just the start of the OpenCL benchmarking support that will be available through the Phoronix Test Suite for testing on Linux and other platforms.
