All of these sound like strict aliasing violations, so would be invalid
in C.

We're talking OpenCL, right?  Since there's the -cl-strict-aliasing
option in OpenCL 1.0 spec, it sounds like strict aliasing isn't assumed
in OpenCL by default.  However, this option is gone in 1.1+, so maybe
strict aliasing is assumed by default in 1.1+?  We need to figure this
out, if we haven't already.
