Zero Copy Buffers using cl_arm_import_memory extension in OpenCL 1.2 - arm mali midgard GPUs.

Hi,

I wish to allocate a vector and use it's data pointer to allocate a zero copy buffer on the GPU. There is this cl_arm_import_memory extension which can be used to do this. But I am not sure wether its supported for all mali midgard OpenCL drivers or not.

I was going through this link and I am quite puzzled by the following lines : -

      If the extension string cl_arm_import_memory_host is exposed then importing
      from normal userspace allocations (such as those created via malloc) is
      supported.

What exactly does these lines mean ? I am specifically working on rockchip's RK3399 boards. Kindly help.
