OpenCL C Language Changes in Clang
+Various bug fixes and improvements:
+- Extended OpenCL-related Clang tests.
+- Improved diagnostics across several areas: scoped address space
+ qualified variables, function pointers, atomics, type rank for overloading,
+ block captures, ``reserve_id_t``.
+- Several address space related fixes for constant address space function scope variables,
+ IR generation, mangling of ``generic`` and alloca (post-fix from general Clang
+ refactoring of address spaces).
+- Several improvements in extensions: fixed OpenCL version for ``cl_khr_mipmap_image``,
+ added missing ``cl_khr_3d_image_writes``.
+- Improvements in ``enqueue_kernel``, especially the implementation of ``ndrange_t`` and blocks.
+- OpenCL type related fixes: global samplers, the ``pipe_t`` size, internal type redefinition,
+ and type compatibility checking in ternary and other operations.
+- The OpenCL header has been extended with missing extension guards, and direct mapping of ``as_type``
+ to ``__builtin_astype``.
+- Fixed ``kernel_arg_type_qual`` and OpenCL/SPIR version in metadata.
+- Added proper use of the kernel calling convention to various targets.
+The following new functionalities have been added:
+- Added documentation on OpenCL to Clang user manual.
+- Extended Clang builtins with required ``cl_khr_subgroups`` support.
+- Add ``intel_reqd_sub_group_size`` attribute support.
+- Added OpenCL types to ``CIndex``.
