-    // This code prevents IsValid from being set when
-    // no libdevice has been found.
-    bool allEmpty = true;
-    std::string LibDeviceFile;
-    for (auto key : LibDeviceMap.keys()) {
-      LibDeviceFile = LibDeviceMap.lookup(key);

It gives us a change to find a valid installation, instead of ailing some time later when we ask for a libdevice file and fail because there are none.

You can see the contradiction there.

> @gtbercea: I'm not sure I follow your example. If you're talking about clang tests, we do have fake CUDA installation setup under test/Driver/Inputs which removes dependency on whatever CUDA you may or may not have installed on your machine. I also don't see a contradiction -- you you do need libdevice, it makes no point picking a broken CUDA installation which does not have any libdevice files. If you explicitly tell compiler that you don't need libdevice, that would make CUDA w/o libdevice acceptable. With --cuda-path you do have a way to tell clang which installation you want it to use. What do I miss?
Ah, you were arguing with Hahnfeld@'s -nocudalib example. Then I guess we're in violent agreement.
