Just because the intended audience is developers is no reason to have confusing names. Developer time is valuable and it should not be wasted decoding confusing names. Intel should fix the bugs in their CXL.mem implementation as quickly as possible and not claim to support CXL until they have a processor that supports all 3 CXL protocols. If Intel doesn’t want to do that, it would be better for their customers and for CXL if the different CXL options were named by their intended application, such as CXL.nic, CXL.gpu and CXL.dram. These are called type 1, type 2 and type 3 devices by the CXL Consortium. This would remove the need for customers to know which protocols are needed for which device types. It is easy enough to understand that the option that works for a gpu will also work for other kinds of accelerators with local memory and the option that works for dram will also work for non-volatile storage.
