    At last... now let's hope it doesn't take ages for drivers to support SPIR and SYCL.

    well AFAIK AMD and Intel does support SPIR. question is how hard is add support in compilers? or it is just C++ library build on top of OpenCL C API?

    SYCL is both a runtime that sits on top of existing OpenCL drivers (using the standard OpenCL C API) and a compiler that translates C++ kernels into SPIR (or other representations if you want to target only one vendor). You should be able to use a SYCL implementation with any OpenCL driver that supports SPIR.
