Hello,

I want to use a pointer in private allocatinon, And It's with global address for caching the pointer address.

But the error occured,

Code :
__kernel void func(__global float* f)
{
    unsigned int gid = get_global_id(0);
    __private float*p = f;
    p += gid;
}

Compiling the kernel,
<<program source>:12:26:{12:26-12:27}: error: illegal implicit cast between two pointers with different address spaces
__private float* p = f;
^

In the Open CL specification 6.8 Restrictions (a) , It's said that this case is not allow.

Must I only use " f[gid] "?
I want to optimize and reduce global memory access. Is there more better implementation?
