    Static C++ support in Current OpenCL Drivers

    tomschi

      hi,

       

      we've noticed that after last AMD OpenCL ICD driver update on our Debian system (to 1.15.7),

      our tests that use static C++ kernel language are failing, because support for this feature seems to have been removed :-(

      (i guess it's related toAMD OpenCL 2.0 with C++ static kernel extension? )

       

      we also tried to use -cl-std=CL1.2 to get rid of the compiler error message

         error: unknown argument: '--c++'

      but without success.

       

      we now had to downgrade to 1.14.9, but we are now back to OpenCL 1.2 which makes future development difficult and

      of course is no future-proof solution.

       

      why is the support for static C++ discontinued in the new drivers?

      when can we expect the current drivers to support static C++ again?

       

      thanks and lg,
