DoubleExFreePool rule (storport)

This rule verifies that the driver does not attempt to free the same block of pool memory twice.

The rule keeps track of the memory pointer that is first passed to ExFreePool. If the same pointer is passed again, the driver fails the rule. If the driver calls RemoveHeadList or RemoveEntryList, the rule passes.
