SpinLock rule (ndis)

The SpinLock rule verifies the correct use of the NDIS spin lock interface. This rule specifies that calls to NdisAcquireSpinLock are made only when the SpinLock is in the unlocked state. This rule also verifies that the SpinLock is released before the miniport handler routine exits.

Driver model: NDIS

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the SpinLock rule.

Use the following steps to run an analysis of your code:
  1. Prepare your code (use role type declarations).
  2. Run Static Driver Verifier.
  3. View and analyze the results.
