StorPortSpinLock3 rule (storport)

The StorPortSpinLock3 rule verifies the lock acquisition hierarchy that is described in the documentation for the StorPortAcquireSpinLock routine.

Storport miniport drivers must ensure that they do not attempt to acquire a lock that is already held or acquire locks in an incorrect order. Either of these mistakes will result in system deadlock.
