ExInterlockedPopEntrySList routine

The ExInterlockedPopEntrySList routine atomically removes the first entry from a sequenced singly linked list.

Syntax


PSLIST_ENTRY ExInterlockedPopEntrySList(
  _Inout_ PSLIST_HEADER ListHead,
  _Inout_ PKSPIN_LOCK   Lock
);

Parameters

ListHead [in, out]

A pointer to the SLIST_HEADER structure that serves as the header for the sequenced singly linked list. ListHead must have been initialized by calling ExInitializeSListHead.

Lock [in, out]

A pointer to a KSPIN_LOCK structure that serves as the spin lock used to synchronize access to the list. The storage for the spin lock must be resident and must have been initialized by calling KeInitializeSpinLock. You must use this spin lock only with the ExInterlockedXxxList routines.

Return value

ExInterlockedPopEntrySList returns a pointer to the first SLIST_ENTRY structure on the list. If the list was empty, the routine returns NULL.

Remarks

For more information about using this routine to implement a sequenced singly linked list, see Singly and Doubly Linked Lists.

On Windows 2000, drivers must use the -D_WIN2K_COMPAT_SLIST_USAGE switch to successfully link code that uses ExInterlockedPopEntrySList.

ExInterlockedPopEntrySList can be called at any IRQL. The storage for the ListHead parameter must be resident at all IRQLs.
