To retain a command queue, call the function
cl_int clRetainCommandQueue( cl_command_queue command_queue);
command_queue specifies the command-queue to be retained.
The command_queue reference count is incremented.
clCreateCommandQueueWithProperties and clCreateCommandQueue perform an implicit retain. This is very helpful for 3rd party libraries, which typically get a command-queue passed to them by the application. However, it is possible that the application may delete the command-queue without informing the library. Allowing functions to attach to (i.e. retain) and release a command-queue solves the problem of a command-queue being used by a library no longer being valid.
CL_SUCCESS if the function is executed
Otherwise, it returns one of the following errors:
CL_INVALID_COMMAND_QUEUEif command_queue is not a valid command-queue.
CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCESif there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the device.
CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORYif there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the host.
