Question about pinned memory implementation in OpenCL

For current SDK 2.01

1) does it exist at all ? (that is, does current SDK 2.01 obey CL_MEM_ALLOC_HOST_PTR flag or just ignores it? )

2) if it exist (that is, if some memory really allocated from non-paged pool), is it mapped on uncached region or "cacheability" of this region changed when map/unmap procedures used?
That is, can CPU effectively work with this memory region (cacheable memory when mapped into host adress space) or it will suffer when do read/write on this memory region?
