  In #755513, there is a missing 'replaces' about the libopencl.so
  Due to Intel (see #679228), ocl-icd ship the libOpenCL.so symlink
into the ocl-icd-libopencl package (ie the lib package, not the
development package).

  As this bug remains me this situation, I'm proposing that we move
the libOpenCL.so symlink into the dev package. Intel told me long
ago that they will fix their license so that we can redistribute
their implementation. But nothing occurs to my knowledge.
  Moreover, it would be easy to document what need to be fixed
(ie add a libOpenCL.so symlink or install an OpenCL dev package) in
order to execute binary compiled with the Intel OpenCL environment.
We will gain a cleaner situation about OpenCL file layout with
respect to the library packaging.

  If you agree, we will have to go through all OpenCL packages to
put correct conflicts/replaces where required.
