I don't quite understand what do you mean by that.
I would apreciate if you could explain that in more details.

Currently I can say that when you modify elf only the binary (isa) is
important and this will be executed. If elf contains il or other stuff
it may be used as an additional information for the gpu driver or
driver just don't care, this is driver dependent. I might be wrong,
this is just my current opinion.
