These built-ins are part of the core specification, which doesn't allow using `half` data type directly, but user can declare a pointer to `half` data type and use built-ins like vload_half/vstore_half converting `half` data type to `float` data type.
cl_khr_fp16 enables regular uses of half data types as well as built-ins returning `half` data type instead of `float` - vload/vstore.
