You should talk to the guys at http://www.anandtech.com/ about AMD. They have good relations with the people who work there. And they test opencl in their reviews.
lol amd can't do something right
I think it comes down to poor documentation. As was said previously in the thread, one team of devs writes the drivers and then leaves the company and another team of devs is left with trying to understand how the code was written. It's like the broken telephone! Could someone that had an experience with ATI years past comment how similar was that with AMD nowadays?!

I'm using Arch (64-bit with multilib), bang up-to-date. I'm not sure it's a problem with PTS though as I'm getting others too related to graphics in general.

FYI I have this bug:
Could an issue with Mesa/r600 cause an OpenCL problem? I'm guessing this is where the issue lies, or thereabouts. Going to do some further reading now...
I'm only guessing, but perhaps what you have installed is the ICD loader, not the OpenCL implementation itself for the device/s you have in your system. In Arch, libcl contains an ICD loader, which serves as a central hub for vendor libraries. OpenCL still has to be provided by, at least, one vendor - which can be Mesa, AMD, NVIDIA, or whatever. I think, however, that Arch builds Mesa without OpenCL support.

Wasn't OpenCL supposed to overcome these platform specific stuff in first place?
