Cannot use opencl on Cape Verde: [opencl_init] could not create command queue for device 0: -6
After discontinuing fglrx I was left without fast darktable for more than half a year on my 7770 Cape Verde...
The last attempt to make it working was the closest: I could install opencl blob and it is visible with clinfo but is still inoperable.
I've opened a bug @ gentoo bugzilla https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=627998
but the maintainers asked me for more info I can not provide.
I do realize that most probably it's not darktable issue at all (other apps seem not to work either) but I ask somebody who can help to participate in the discussion over there to triangle the problem and possibly find a solution.

From darktable-cltest's output:
[opencl_init] could not create command queue for device 0: -6
Error code -6 relates to CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY. And that's what the docs tell us about this error during command queue creation:
CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the host.
I guess it's a driver bug.

I get the same error with my Radeon R7 250 (GCN 1.0) on a clean install of Ubuntu GNOME 16.04.3, and the newest AMDGPU-PRO driver (17.30)

Darktable's OpenCL works fine with this card on Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 with the discontinued fglrx driver.
