Re: [eigen] compilation failure in CUDA/Half.h in non-nvcc build

Sorry about that. I disabled the use of the _cvtss_sh and _cvtsh_ss instructions when compiling with clang in the latest revision of the Eigen code base.

Hi all,

Building with the new(?) LLVM-based g++ on Mac, I'm getting the following
/Users/cdyer/eigen-dev/Eigen/src/Core/arch/CUDA/Half.h:285:9: error: use of undeclared identifier '_cvtss_sh'
  h.x = _cvtss_sh(ff, 0);
/Users/cdyer/eigen-dev/Eigen/src/Core/arch/CUDA/Half.h:338:10: error: use of undeclared identifier '_cvtsh_ss'
  return _cvtsh_ss(h.x);

Poking around, it looks like there was a recent change to LLVM to add these intrinsics this change hasn't made it into the standard Xcode release (which most mac developers use, I think).

   #undef EIGEN_HAS_FP16_C
will fix this, but I'm not quite sure what the appropriate ifdef guard is. Fixing this could be quite useful for your Mac users.
