[LLVMdev] GPU back-ends?

I have a silly question for some possible future work.  It looks to me 
like Apple uses LLVM for both OpenGL and OpenCL code generation.  Does 
that mean that there are GPU back-ends available for use by front-ends? 
  I looked in llvm/lib/Target and saw a Cell SPU target but nothing I 
recognized as targeting a GPU.

If there is a prospect for IR -> GPU compilation, that would allow for 
some...interesting possibilities in the future.
