StartIoRecursion rule (wdm)

The StartIoRecursion rule specifies that if a driver's StartIo routine includes a call to IoStartNextPacket, the driver must first call IoSetStartIoAttributes with the DeferredStartIo attribute set to TRUE. Otherwise, infinite recursion can result.

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the StartIoRecursion rule.

Use the following steps to run an analysis of your code:
  1. Prepare your code (use role type declarations).
  2. Run Static Driver Verifier.
  3. View and analyze the results.
