  at file /build/beignet-Bevceu/beignet-1.3.2/backend/src/llvm/llvm_gen_backend.cpp, function void gbe::GenWriter::findPointerEscape(llvm::Value*, std::set<llvm::Value*>&, bool, std::vector<llvm::Value*, std::allocator<llvm::Value*> >&), line 1004

It doesn't seem to be Blender/Cycles issue as much as Beignet (similar open issue reported 5 month ago).

It can also happen if your GPU is unsupported/blacklisted. There's wiki page to check - if you have AMD card before GCN 2 then it's unsupported. With supported AMD cards there could be problems on older drivers.
