You always get a -DDEVICE_INFO=xx when you build your kernel (provided you use eg. opencl_init() from common-opencl.c) and this is a but-field with DEV_xx values from the opencl_device_info.h header. So that is what you pass to no_byte_addressable(n). I use things like this in my kernels:

#include "opencl_device_info.h"

#if gpu_nvidia(DEVICE_INFO) || amd_gcn(DEVICE_INFO)
#define SCALAR

#if gpu_amd(DEVICE_INFO)


And I use these in host code:

#include "opencl_device_info.h"
        int source_in_use = device_info[ocl_gpu_id];

        if (gpu_nvidia(source_in_use) || amd_gcn(source_in_use)) {
                /* Use scalar code */
                VF = 1;
                self->params.algorithm_name = "OpenCL";
        } else {
                /* Use vectorized code */
                VF = 4;
                self->params.algorithm_name = "OpenCL 4x";

...and this alternative way:

        if (get_device_type(ocl_gpu_id) == CL_DEVICE_TYPE_CPU) {
                if (get_platform_vendor_id(platform_id) == DEV_INTEL)
                        local_work_size = 8;
                        local_work_size = 1;
        } else {
                local_work_size = 64;
