[Mesa-dev] how to run gallium/tests/trivial/compute.c on r600

Hi, Gallium Hackers,

We are working on Gallium3D on android-x86, APU. We want to run general
compute programs on r600 GPU, specifically, "Radeon HD6310(Evergreen

The first thing drawn our eyes are gallium/tests/trivial/compute.c because
it calls general compute APIs and attempts to execute tgsi programs on a
back-end. unfortunately, we failed to execute it even we have pipe_r600.so
on android-x86. now we have a healthy android-x86 and it supports opengl
well. further, we can run tri.c under tests/trivial/ directory as well.

let's take a simple example. can a kind person give us pointers?
static void test_resource_access(struct context *ctx)
        const char *src = "COMP\n"
                "DCL RES[0], BUFFER, RAW, WR\n"
                "DCL RES[1], 2D, RAW, WR\n"
                "DCL SV[0], BLOCK_ID[0]\n"
                "DCL TEMP[0], LOCAL\n"
                "DCL TEMP[1], LOCAL\n"
                "IMM UINT32 { 15, 0, 0, 0 }\n"
                "IMM UINT32 { 16, 1, 0, 0 }\n"
                "    BGNSUB\n"
                "       UADD TEMP[0].x, SV[0].xxxx, SV[0].yyyy\n"
                "       AND TEMP[0].x, TEMP[0], IMM[0]\n"
                "       UMUL TEMP[0].x, TEMP[0], IMM[1]\n"
                "       LOAD TEMP[0].xyzw, RES[0], TEMP[0]\n"
                "       UMUL TEMP[1], SV[0], IMM[1]\n"
                "       STORE RES[1].xyzw, TEMP[1], TEMP[0]\n"
                "       RET\n"
                "    ENDSUB\n";
        void init0(void *p, int s, int x, int y) {
                *(float *)p = 8.0 - (float)x;
        void init1(void *p, int s, int x, int y) {
                *(uint32_t *)p = 0xdeadbeef;
        void expect(void *p, int s, int x, int y) {
                *(float *)p = 8.0 - (float)((x + 4*y) & 0x3f);

        printf("- %s\n", __func__);

        init_prog(ctx, 0, 0, 0, src, NULL);
        init_tex(ctx, 0, PIPE_BUFFER, true, PIPE_FORMAT_R32_FLOAT,
                 256, 0, init0);
        init_tex(ctx, 1, PIPE_TEXTURE_2D, true, PIPE_FORMAT_R32_FLOAT,
                 60, 12, init1);
        init_compute_resources(ctx, (int []) { 0, 1, -1 });
        launch_grid(ctx, (uint []){1, 1, 1}, (uint []){15, 12, 1}, 0, NULL);
        check_tex(ctx, 1, expect, NULL);

for init_prog, here is the key functions:
        *tgsi_text_translate(psrc, prog, Elements(prog));
what's the meaning for this API?  the input is tgsi program, what's the
in a nutshell, how can gallium translate tgsi to evergreen's ISA.

        *ctx->hwcs = pipe->create_compute_state(pipe, &cs);
        *pipe->bind_compute_state(pipe, ctx->hwcs);
in evergreen_compute.c, it doesn't calloc kernels array and process
cso->prog if HAVE_OPENCL is not set.  should we set HAVE_OPENCL for general
