Recommended Open CL SDK for use with AMDGPU-PRO on Linux?

Many web sites recommend AMD APP SDK for use with AMD GPUs, but I recently learnt that the most recent AMDGPU-PRO driver for Ubuntu 16.04 is incompatible with the AMD APP SDK. Question 1: What would be a suitable Open CL SDK to be used with AMDGPU-PRO?

 

Incidentally, I use 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and for a start, I use a Radeon HD 7870 card. My first test goal would be to run the Matrix* samples included in the AMD APP SDK.

 

Question 2: Web search indicates that just after installing open cl header files, the libraries included with AMDGPU-PRO may suffice to compile and run the sample programs. Is this correct, and if so what would the command sequence look like?
