New in version 3.9.

CUDA only: Enables device linking for the specific library target where required.

If set, this will tell the required compilers to enable device linking on the library target. Device linking is an additional link step required by some CUDA compilers when CUDA_SEPARABLE_COMPILATION is enabled. Normally device linking is deferred until a shared library or executable is generated, allowing for multiple static libraries to resolve device symbols at the same time when they are used by a shared library or executable.

If this property or CMAKE_CUDA_RESOLVE_DEVICE_SYMBOLS is unset, static libraries are treated as if it is disabled while shared, module, and executable targets behave as if it is on.

If CMAKE_CUDA_RESOLVE_DEVICE_SYMBOLS has been defined, this property is initialized to the value the variable and overriding the default behavior.

Note that device linking is not supported for Object Libraries.

For instance:
