NdisOpenConfigurationEx rule (ndis)

This rule checks that NdisOpenConfigurationEx and NdisCloseConfiguration are called in alternate order. The ultimate goal is to make sure that configuration handles are closed when MiniportHaltEx exits.

The rule uses three different states. The state changes when a configuration is opened or closed. If a configuration handle is still open when the MiniportHaltEx exits, a defect is reported.
