IoIncrementKeepAliveCount routine

The IoIncrementKeepAliveCount routine increments a reference count associated with an Windows Store app process on a specific device. This routine is called by a kernel mode driver in response to the app opening a process for I/O. This prevents Windows from suspending the app before the I/O process is complete.
