I have a kernel which I have defined by

Filename: kernel.cl

__kernel void ptop(__global int *a, __global int *b, __global int *c)
{
size_t global_id = get_global_id(0);

a[global_id] = a[global_id] + b[global_id]
}

if I try to build this program, I get a crash at clBuildProgram().

If I modify the kernel by removing the 3rd argument "__global int *c", or if I change the statement
a[global_id] = a[global_id] + b[global_id]

to

a[global_id] = a[global_id] + b[global_id] + c[global_id]

clBuildProgram() works fine.

My initial guess was the build reporting an usused variable, since I was not using the 3rd argument "c". The trouble is, it shouldn't crash for something like that, and moreover if the compiler sees that as an issue, I should be getting a build warning in the build logs. The trouble is I am not even able to get a build log, since the crash is fatal at clBuildProgram().
