If anyone cares, here is the correct one:

#ifdef cl_nv_pragma_unroll
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION cl_nv_pragma_unroll : enable

In fact the spec guarantees this: "Every extension which affects the
OpenCL language semantics, syntax or adds built-in functions to the
language must create a preprocessor #define that matches the extension
name string. This #define would be available in the language if and only
if the extension is supported on a given implementation."
