QuestionCPU PDO ACPI Enumeration Pin
Erudite_Eric28-Mar-13 10:35
MemberErudite_Eric28-Mar-13 10:35 
So I have a driver that does a child enum on the ACPI PDO. It gets back the methods, and then does an evaluate. There are two ways of doing this, evaluateex and evaluate. Oddly for exactly the same methods they return different data, not different in value, but the ex evaluation data has a 4 byte padding after each package, the eval method doesent. This is for _PSS data.

What is also odd that if the eval is called during IRP_MJ_START_DEVICE the _PCT data is also different to that obtained later on so I assume even then the device hasnt completely started. The _PCT at IRP_MJ_START_DEVICE shows IO port access, but later shows FFHW as the acces.

What is also interesting is that attaching to the PDO outside of AddDevice causes enum children to returns STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED, which is odd, since the only interface to the PDO is the PDO pointer and the Irp, how DOES the PDO know the Irp is being sent from a DO attached outside of AddDevice? Odd stuff indeed.

Anyway it doesnt affect the functioning of the driver, it controls COU speed OK, but this variability of what the PDO is returning is odd and I cant exmplain it. Anyone have any idea why this is?
==============================

Nothing to say.
