It's the predecessor (removed in 3.1), but most of the concepts are the
same.  The short version of the history is that I developed the original
PTX back-end with a few other people (PTX back-end in 3.0/3.1) and it was
later replaced by the NVIDIA version of the back-end around May of 2012.

The NVIDIA version is a much more complete version, as it is actually used
in production compilers as opposed to being a small university project. :)
