@intelfx, can you update the package to r4.0 ?

@sirocco: sorry, I forgot to regenerate .SRCINFO.

@archer666: no idea. Works out of the box on my Haswell; I have no other hardware to test.

Trying this on my Lenovo P50 (P530 GPU) on Arch (4.8.6 kernel) with no luck.

Nvidia is switched off completely (rmmod nvidia, /proc/acpi/bbswitch shows OFF) , /etc/OpenCL/verdors contains

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 36 Jun 15 10:50 intel-gpu.icd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 22 Oct 28 08:18 nvidia.icd

while intel-gpu.icd contains /opt/intel/opencl/ (which is there)

oclinfo (own) shows nothing, clinfo (amd) dumps core, haven't found any intel tool to check environment in intel-opencl-sdk (other package ofc).

What am I missing?

This is great news!
Really, i have been trying to get the patch to work on newer kernels for quite
a while now. Maybe i should have just tried running ocl without the patches. Hmm.
Anyways, thanks for putting this up!

Yes, this OpenCL implementation passes CLBlast unit tests on Haswell i7-4700MQ / Intel HD Graphics 4600 (both the previous version and the one just uploaded, kernel 4.6).

If there are any out-of-tree kernel patches, they must be optional.

Are you sure this works? According to the installation manual,
this software requires a kernel patch in order to function properly.
And according to Intel, the only supported kernels are 4.1.0 and 3.10.0 .
I have looked into the patches, and it seems that not everything has
made it into mainline.
