I think the main issues with AMD and opencl is that there were never 
drivers to support the 'older cards' when they were new. And the newer 
drivers dropped the support for older cards. If you do enable it (for 
example on a Ryzen 5 Mobile CPU) you can literally crash the Linux kernel, 
I noticed this with Tesseract OCR.
