Picture having two 7990 cards for a total of four devices. Using "-fork=4" with an OpenCL format would pick device 0 for the mother process, device 1 for first child and so on. Only very fast formats [where set_key() is a bottleneck] would benefit. I think it's a cool idea and Claudio has a trivial PoC patch. Should we do this? It will hopefully be obsoleted by mask mode and other planned things. OTOH I would not mind at all applying it. Any comments are welcome. magnum
