Question AMD Radeon RX Vega (various) GPU cards on classic *BSD?

I'm aware classic *BSD mostly/all somehow imports some Linux drivers into a framework allowing them to be used with *BSD kernels. I'm trying to use an AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 (the Vega series is over a year old now) but wondering when it'd have full support sort of like AMDGPU-PRO (available for Redhat/RHEL/CentOS, SUSE/SLED/SLES, Ubuntu GNU/Linuxes)... meaning letting you compute with the GPU, not just use for 2D (or 3D, which is not so necessary for me.) What I heard on freenode IRC is that classic *BSD need a new Mesa so they can enable OpenCL. I looked at the Mesa website and it says it now supports the chip family name a.k.a. the Vega ones. How long would you say it might be until any stable NetBSD, FreeBSD/TrueOS, or OpenBSD might have this sort of support you could use OpenCL? I like to use it (forced to use a different OS on that PC, but I have a few PCs on my desktop) like for UC Berkeley's Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) to support science and even get paid Gridcoin (GRC) doing that, but I'd like to eventually use OpenCL for such things on classic *BSD... most likely FreeBSD, or even TrueOS if I can set to boot to command-line rather than X (lately I just think graphical installers are occasionally nice.)
