Hello. I have a question about kernel arguments.
Assuming my kernel is defined as something like this:
Code :__kernel void my_kernel_func(__global const int w)
I pass the argument:
Code :clSetKernelArg(kernel_obj, 0, sizeof(cl_int), &w) ;
Ok, then, how exactly the compiler treats the const int w ?
I mean, is the argument 'w' treated as constant integer and optimized out in compile time ?
Or, is it just in a global memory and is accessing the variable become slow ?
