Summary     : Portable Computing Language - an OpenCL implementation
Description :
Pocl's goal is to become an efficient open source (MIT-licensed) implementation
of the OpenCL 1.2 (and soon OpenCL 2.0) standard.

In addition to producing an easily portable open-source OpenCL implementation,
another major goal of this project is improving performance portability of
OpenCL programs with compiler optimizations, reducing the need for
target-dependent manual optimizations.

At the core of pocl is the kernel compiler that consists of a set of LLVM
passes used to statically transform kernels into work-group functions with
multiple work-items, even in the presence of work-group barriers. These
functions are suitable for parallelization in multiple ways (SIMD, VLIW,

Update Information:

This upgrades llvm to 3.7.0 release and rebuilds dependant packages against it.
It should enable OpenGL 4.1 on radeonsi hardware.  llvm-3.7.0-1.fc23  - llvm
3.7.0   libclc-0.0.1-11.20150918git4346c30.fc23  - latest snapshot - set build
req to llvm 3.7   pocl-0.11-3.git20150917.522717b.fc23  - snapshot pocl master -
for llvm 3.7 support   mesa-11.0.0-2.20150913.fc23  - rebuild 11.0.0 against
llvm 3.7   julia-0.4.0-0.4.rc1.fc23  - drag in latest upstream 0.4 branch in
hope of fixing i686 - drop out some tests on i686 - build against LLVM 3.7
----    julia-0.4.0-0.3.rc1.fc23  - New upstream release candidate. - Drop now
useless patch. - Remove libccalltest.so file installed under /usr/share/.
