Intel NEO OpenCL driver for Disco

The past few months I’ve been packaging the bits needed for Intel’s new OpenCL driver, which they call NEO. The packages are now finally ready, you can enable ‘ppa:canonical-x/x-staging’ and install ‘intel-opencl’ on Disco. After installing it this is what ‘clinfo’ says on my laptop:

I’ll check with Intel if some of the ‘no devices found’ are to be expected or not..

It’s still possible these might end up in the 19.04 release, we’ll see. They’re also uploaded to Debian, though with the Buster release keeping everyone busy I’m sure it’ll take some time to get them all through the NEW queue.

NOTE: if you already have the stack installed from Intel’s github repo, please uninstall it first. Otherwise there will be file conflicts since the package names won’t match.
