cudaThreadExit not implicitly called.... Ramifications?


The CUDA Release notes (3.2) says that cudaThreadExit() may not be implicitly called by the driver.
So, what are the ramifications? Will it result in resource shortage going forward?
What are the ramifications?

Best regards,

CAn any1 from NVIDIA driver team update us? Thanks!

Any one ?

This has been in the release notes since the beginning of time. I think it was in the release notes for v0.8 !! It has been there so long, I’m starting to wonder if it is ever going to be resolved.

It is somewhat annoying to guarantee that no matter how your program terminates, it will call always call cudaThreadExit…
