MdlAfterReqCompletedIoctlA rule (kmdf)

The MdlAfterReqCompletedIoctlA rule specifies that within the EvtIoDeviceControl callback function, the memory descriptor list (MDL) cannot be accessed after the I/O request is completed.

Within the driver's EvtIoDeviceControl callback function, the MDL that was retrieved by calling the WdfRequestRetrieveInputWdmMdl or WdfRequestRetrieveOutputWdmMdl method cannot be accessed after calling WdfRequestComplete, WdfRequestCompleteWithInformation, or WdfRequestCompleteWithPriorityBoost on the I/O request.

This rule looks at the following two MDL access methods:

WdfRequestRetrieveOutputWdmMdl WdfRequestRetrieveInputWdmMdl

Driver model KMDF

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the MdlAfterReqCompletedIoctlA 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.
