I'm not optimistic. Now i can segfault the compiler using my best code 
for NVIDIA. And I do compile only.
I checked on bull CPU, NVIDIA and 7970. It is the SAME source code, i 
even removed #defines, #ifdefs, etc. The source:

     opencl_build_kernel("$JOHN/", gpu_id);
     exit(0); // <==

The result is: (and i did nothing or am i crazy? Not that crazy at least)
OpenCL platform 1: AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing, 2 device(s).
Using device 0: Tahiti
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

So i will:
- try your PUTCHAR macro.
- do the final test and ajustment.
- create and submit a patch.
- and than come back to 7970. At this time, we might have a better 12.04 

If we have a new version:
- I can remove the support to AMD GPU (using nice warning message).
- I can remove the support to southern island AMD GPU (idem).

BTW: the NVIDIA code gives me more than 3500 c/s. It is not that bad.
