I never managed to understand why atomic functions are not supported for other data types… I want support for unsigned char.
Without being a programming expert, I took a look on the code, and I didn’t saw any special commands that explain how they serialize memory writes etc It was very simple.
So, I was thinking whether it is possible to write my own atomic function.
Is this possible? Or I’ll end up with a simple function, without the benefits of an atomic?
Do I have to rebuild the whole CUDA library?
