I think, FireRay library coulld be injected in the OpenCL Cycles version, but it surely, at this point, more easy to create a complete new "addon " render with it ( similar of FireRender ) than try to convert Cycles ( material, code ) to Fireray. Support wil be more easy, developpement will be faster.
Cycles have been developped during years for CUDA or CPU, and there’s surely more things to change for get it allready working with OpenCL.
I will take Luxrender as example, extremely advanced features wise, damn fast with OpenCL GPU ( Luxcore ) because it use mainly OpenCL.
They dont have to port codes developped for another language, API or designed around workaround for something else than OpenCL.
