About HSA Linux kernel driver

Hi all,

I have several questions related to the support of HSA linux driver.


1. Does Linux kfd v0.6.1 driver support HSA runtime API defined in the spec?

2. Is there any tutorial on how to use the kfd driver? For example, how to write a  HSA user program like OpenCL and how to compile kernel program into HSAIL BRIG?

3. Does AMD plan to support HSA feature for discrete GPU in the near future? Or just focuses on APU for now?


Sorry for so many questions. I'm a graduate student trying to find some possible research topics related to HSA and hoping to find an experimental platform for testing.

Thank you very much.
