OpenCL issues with 13.1 on Debian

Hello all, I recently tried upgrading the AMD OpenCL platform on my Debian unstable (which carries stuff from Catalyst 12.6) to the 13.1 stuff from Debian experimental. I noticed two things:

 

(1) the clinfo command segfaults while printing the information of the Intel platform (I have AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA platforms on this machine). This also happens if I keep the OpenCL platform from 12.6, so it seems specific to clinfo from 13.1

 

(2) the AMD platform from 13.1 expects to find fglrx. I have no AMD cards on this specific machine, so I only use the AMD platform for CPU. I get these error messages:

Setting of real/effective user Id to 0/0 failed
FATAL: Module fglrx not found.
Error! Fail to load fglrx kernel module! Maybe you can switch to root user to load kernel module directly

 

While I understand the opportunity of trying to load the fglrx module if it's not loaded, the console messages (which get printed at every run) are quite a bother. Some way to suppress the message, or even set the amd platform to not look for gpus, would be nice.
