BTW, is there any way to target future Intel CPUs (those with AVX2)
with Intel's OpenCL SDK and see if this kernel would be vectorized then?
Of course, we won't be able to run it yet, except maybe on their SDE.

There is not, yet the SDK might e.g. choose to place "local" allocations
closer together, assuming that they're accessed more frequently than
"global" ones and should not possibly be in the same cache lines (so
that a "local" load does not unnecessarily pull in any "global" data).
