FLT_PARAMETERS for IRP_MJ_MDL_READ union

The following union component is used when the MajorFunction field of the FLT_IO_PARAMETER_BLOCK structure for the operation is IRP_MJ_MDL_READ.

Syntax

typedef union _FLT_PARAMETERS {
  ...    ;
  struct {
    LARGE_INTEGER           FileOffset;
    ULONG POINTER_ALIGNMENT Length;
    ULONG POINTER_ALIGNMENT Key;
    PMDL                    *MdlChain;
  } MdlRead;
  ...    ;
} FLT_PARAMETERS, *PFLT_PARAMETERS;

Members

MdlRead
Structure containing the following members.

FileOffset
Starting byte within the cached file.

Length
Length, in bytes, of the data to be read from the cached file.

Key
Key value associated with a byte-range lock on the target file. If the range to be read overlaps or is a subrange of an exclusively locked range within the file, this parameter must be the key for that exclusive lock. The exclusive lock must be held by the parent process of the calling thread; otherwise, this parameter is ignored.

MdlChain
Pointer to a variable that receives a pointer to a chain of one or more memory descriptor lists (MDL) that describe the pages containing the data to be read.

Remarks

The FLT_PARAMETERS structure for IRP_MJ_MDL_READ operations contains the parameters for a fast I/O MdlRead operation represented by a callback data (FLT_CALLBACK_DATA) structure. It is contained in an FLT_IO_PARAMETER_BLOCK structure.

If a fast I/O IRP_MJ_MDL_READ request fails, the issuer of the I/O determines how to reissue the request. A minifilter may not always get an IRP-based IRP_MJ_MDL_READ. For instance, the IRP request could be reissued as IRP_MJ_READ/IRP_MN_MDL.

IRP_MJ_MDL_READ is a fast I/O operation.
