The spills in FillSegment and GenerateAddresses are pretty bad.  Where
do they come from, and why so much?  In FillSegment you use 1 KB per
work-item for addresses[], in GenerateAddresses you use 2 KB for two
blocks.  GenerateAddresses is called from FillSegment, so adds its
private memory needs on top of FillSegment's.
