Simplified Reset Handling
NDIS 6.0 and later drivers do not reset miniport adapters to cancel send or OID requests. Instead, NDIS provides send cancellation and OID request cancellation functions.
An NDIS miniport driver can complete or cancel a pending send operation or pending OID request at any time -- either before or after completing a reset. The miniport driver does not have to keep track of when it received a request with respect to a reset. Also, the driver does not have to synchronize a canceled request with the completion of a reset.
