That means it will not be supported in the future. There are some
requirements to the hardware that must be satisfied before we can use the
GPU as OpenCL device.

This feature is still under heavy development and not yet ready for testing
by QA. As you might have noticed it is still disabled and might still
contain serious bugs. If you want to test something in master it makes more
sense to test the normal code paths in Calc by making sure that the large
Calc refactorings did not introduce regressions.
