Parallel region merged with parallel region at <location>. [OMP150]

This optimization remark indicates that a parallel region was merged with others into a single parallel region. Parallel region merging fuses consecutive parallel regions to reduce the team activation overhead of forking and increases the scope of possible OpenMP-specific optimizations within merged parallel regions. This optimization can also guard sequential code between two parallel regions if applicable.


This optimization should apply to any compatible and consecutive parallel regions. In this case the sequential region between the parallel regions will be guarded so it is only executed by a single thread in the new merged region.
