I only skimmed the first few pages, but got the impression that paper 
says "GPU architecture is different that modern CPUs, especially around 
memory layout/protection" and it isn't immediately clear to me where 
responsibility for any vulnerability lies.  Is it simply not possible 
to write memory-corruption-proof code for GPUs?

Regardless, I have no problem with issuing CVE IDs for hardware 
vulnerabilities.  I'm just claiming that they are rare, and usually 
involve low-level software.
