: fine/medium grained parallelism (this may be called task level
: parallelism, it is just above instruction level parallelism).

The parallelizing compilers that exist can be considered as
consisting of a front-end:-
This extracts parallelism without bothering about m/c characteristics.
and a back-end:-
This takes the inter-mediate form (of parallel code) and
generates parallel code which will execute optimally on the target h/w.
The standard techniques can be used for the m/c described by you without
any problem.
One good book that contains references to most papers is:-
Supercompilers for parallel and vector supercomputers.
-Hans Zima
Another recently published by Kluwer publishers is:-
Resturcturing compilers for Parallel computers.
-Utpal Banerjee.
The same author has also published another book on:-
Data dependence analysis
Hope that helps.
