+CUDA Support in Clang
+Clang has experimental support for end-to-end CUDA compilation now:
+- The driver now detects CUDA installation, creates host and device compilation
+  pipelines, links device-side code with appropriate CUDA bitcode and produces

+- Implemented target attribute-based function overloading which allows clang to
+  compile CUDA sources without splitting them into separate host/device TUs.
