Intel's SDK officially supports AMD CPU's (but possibly with non optimal
performance), and vice versa. We should have both installed on bull, and
aim to get everything running on both SDK's. But in this case it might
be a bug in AMD APP 923.1 that is not present in 831.4.

BTW I also tried compiling with clcc but did not get any
new clues (sometimes it emits invaluable info).
