HSA 1.0 API not compatible with 1.0 provisional specs

The recent release of the 1.0 HSA specifications has several differences compared with the previous 1.0 provisional specs.


Here are just some of the changes that I have noticed:

  • hsa_dispatch_packet_t does not exist anymore. Seems to have been replaced by hsa_kernel_dispatch_packet_t
  • hsa_barrier_packet_t also does not exist in 1.0 specs
  • The extensions to the core runtime API have changed. hsa_ext_program_handle_t, hsa_ext_add_module are not present in 1.0 anymore


Any idea when AMD will have an update ready for its HSA RT?
