Here is a parlor for the cryptical output. Some of them were hard to
find and the CUDA nomenclature differs from OpenCL so I thought I'd
share it.

smem            CUDA shared / OpenCL local memory
lmem            CUDA local / OpenCL global memory
cmem[0]         kernel arguments
cmem[1]         variables
cmem[2]         user defined __constant__ objects
cmem[14]        compiler generated constants
cmem[16]        compiler generated constants (some of which may
correspond to literal constants in the source code)
