I compared fosphor to the nVidia OpenCL Simple OpenGL Interop example 
and noticed that fosphor calls glMapBuffer/glUnmapBuffer to clear the
spectrum vbo between the calls to glBufferData and clCreateFromGLBuffer.
If I eliminate the map/memset/unmap here by removing the call to
gl_vbo_clear in gl_deferred_init , then clCreateFromGLBuffer returns
CL_SUCCESS and fosphor appears to work with CL/GL sharing. It is not clear
to me if clearing the vbo_spectrum is necessary here, since
cl_queue_clear_buffers later initializes the mem_spectrum buffer to the
I'm using an nvidia GTX 1650 with version 430.50 of the nvidia drivers
under Linux Mint 18. A friend of mine tested the GTX 1060 and also had
success with this workaround.
