I checked and the only possible error type that is related is
"CL_INVALID_PROGRAM_EXECUTABLE", so whenever the program is invalid we
would get that error. The rest of the error codes are about invalid kernel,
context, dimensions, etc.

Today I modified the program that creates the kernel so that it passes the
appropriate number/type of arguments for the blowfish kernel.
Then when I tried to copy the assembly generated fromt he kernel, I
realized that it might be wrong.

Could somebody please take a look at this ISA? (I attached it to the mail)
All it does is loading dwords, writing something to the LDS and do a very
little computation. Surely blowfish is more complicated than this. Might
the ISA be wrong? All the ds_write calls and no reads is a bad sign.

The ISA of DES (which also uses DS instructions) looks much better, maybe I
should try to use that instead.
