Can you attach pi.c?

There are several ways you can troubleshoot this. You can use "GOMP_DEBUG=1
./gpu_a.x" to see if the device code is JIT-compiled successfully; "strace
-e open ./gpu_a.x" to see if device nodes (/dev/nvidia*) are opened at all.
Finally, try minimal examples (like assigning result of acc_on_device() to a
variable and then printing it).

That is expected: GCC embeds device code differently from NVCC (and it seems
PGI invokes or mimics NVCC so layout is the same).  You can use "gcc
-save-temps -foffload=-save-temps" to make GCC dump PTX code, or if the kernel
is very short "GOMP_DEBUG=1 ./gpu_a.x" should work too.  Finally as a very
quick'n'dirty approach you can simply use "strings -a gpu_a.x".
