This bug check results from the improper use of KeWaitForMultipleObjects or FsRtlCancellableWaitForMultipleObjects.
The caller may pass a pointer to a buffer in this routine's WaitBlockArray parameter. The system will use this buffer to keep track of wait objects.
If a buffer is supplied, the Count parameter may not exceed MAXIMUM_WAIT_OBJECTS. If no buffer is supplied, the Count parameter may not exceed THREAD_WAIT_OBJECTS.
If the value of Count exceeds the allowable value, this bug check is issued.
