The ExInterlockedPopEntrySList routine atomically removes the first entry from a sequenced singly linked list.
NTKERNELAPI PSLIST_ENTRY FASTCALL ExInterlockedPopEntrySList ( _Inout_ PSLIST_HEADER ListHead, _Inout_opt_ _Requires_lock_not_held_(*_Curr_) PKSPIN_LOCK Lock );
A pointer to a KSPIN_LOCK structure that serves as the spin lock used to synchronize access to the list. The storage for the spin lock must be resident and must have been initialized by calling KeInitializeSpinLock. You must use this spin lock only with the ExInterlockedXxxList routines.
ExInterlockedPopEntrySList returns a pointer to the first SLIST_ENTRY structure on the list. If the list was empty, the routine returns NULL.
For more information about using this routine to implement a sequenced singly linked list, see Singly and Doubly Linked Lists.
On Windows 2000, drivers must use the -D_WIN2K_COMPAT_SLIST_USAGE switch to successfully link code that uses ExInterlockedPopEntrySList.
ExInterlockedPopEntrySList can be called at any IRQL. The storage for the ListHead parameter must be resident at all IRQLs.
