I have not read your code in any detail, and do not intend to, but
please permit me to point out that GCC-specific #pragmas should begin
"#pragma GCC" (you do this with the namespace argument to
c_register_pragma - note the line immediately above the two you
added). If these #pragmas are compatible with some other compiler,
please document which compiler that is.
Also, if I was just going along reading code and I saw
#pragma [GCC] ivdep, I would have no idea what it did. Could you
please use a more descriptive name, e.g.
#pragma GCC ignore_data_dependencies? (Ignore this critique if it's
"ivdep" for compatibility with some other compiler.)
I tried to match Intel compiler. That is also why I did not put it
in GCC namespace. I will update document to mention that this is
compatible with Intel compiler.
Finally, I notice that your test cases are inconsistent with your code.
Yup. At the last minute I fixed names ;)
