task #13900 was defined for a general way for programs to allow different threads (CPU or GPU) to read parts of their input data separately. It is thus not fully independent of this task.

From version 5, GCC has started implementing the OpenACC standard to use GPU functionality on any GPU. It is not yet complete, but we can start planning for it.

Basically, we can write a check in "./configure" to see if a GPU is present on the system and set a macro in config.h so the appropriate part of the code can use OpenACC. Ofcourse since GCC is still implementing OpenACC, there is no general rush until it has become mature enough.
