RemoveLockForwardDeviceControl rule (wdm)

The RemoveLockForwardDeviceControl rule verifies that calls to IoAcquireRemoveLock and IoReleaseRemoveLock are used correctly when the driver uses IoCallDriver to forward an IRP to a another device.

Driver model WDM

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the RemoveLockForwardDeviceControl 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.
