device buffer

Post by fewl9012 »

This term is used in exactly three places
omp_target_is_present
omp_target_associate_ptr
omp_target_disassociate_ptr
This looks like it is trying to allow for OpenCL-like buffer behavior, but the term 'device buffer' is nowhere defined or used when describing the map clauses, which would be appropriate. It's a peculiar term to use here.
