[Bf-committers] Buildbot cuda-hack

I run a few tests regarding clang and omp after installing OSX 10.11 and Xcode 7.3.1.
It seems that clang-omp-3.5 from libs can’t compile using OSX 10.11 SDK.
So, I downloaded clang 3.7.0 and 3.8.0 darwin binaries from official page and both compile blender ok after a minor modification on cmake.

After the tests I have not found any issues with cuda 7.5 and xcode 7.3.1 or clang 3.7/3.8 but I guess it’s because I am using the latest version and is seems to have fixed incompatible compiler issues but as I don’t know what the cuda-hack does, I am not sure.
Any comment on what the cuda-hack does/solves is very welcome.

But now with CUDA 8 it seems I have to update to OSX 10.11 and Xcode 7.3.
