At least in the case of how Caffe is doing it with CUDA devices. I'm not aware of whether or not this is the normal behavior, though. Does it need a "CUDA_DEVICE_ORDINAL" if it is normal?

As far as I can tell the CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES is interpreted by the CUDA library, not by Caffe, and from Caffe's perspective it just sees a sequential list of ID numbers corresponding to the visible devices.
