How to bind GpuMat to texture

I have a GpuMat Image(H, W, CV_8UC3)
May I bind it using these function?

texture<uchar3, 2, cudaReadModeNormalizedFloat> rgbTex;
cudaChannelFormatDesc desc = cudaCreateChannelDesc<uchar3>();
cudaBindTexture2D(0, rgbTex,, desc, W, H, Image.step));

The main problem is that you can't use GpuMat in .cu files (nvcc can't compile gpumat.hpp header). You can pass only GpuMat's members to functions from .cu file:

// .cu file

texture<uchar3, 2, cudaReadModeNormalizedFloat> rgbTex;

void cu_func(void* data, size_t step, int width, int height)
    cudaChannelFormatDesc desc = cudaCreateChannelDesc<uchar3>();
    cudaBindTexture2D(0, rgbTex, data, desc, width, height, step));

// .cpp file

void cu_func(void* data, size_t step, int width, int height);

void cpp_func(GpuMat Image)
    cu_func(, Image.step, Image.cols, Image.rows);

If I include gpu/device/common.hpp, I can use PtrStep and PtrStepSz in cu files, so I can do things just like I post. Is it right?

Yes. You can also use bindTexture function from common.hpp: cv::gpu::device::bindTexture(&tex, img);

Thanks, it's helpful.
