Each hardware event is associated with an interrupt. One interrupt prompts the clock and scheduler to run, another prompts the keyboard driver to run, and so on. When a hardware event occurs, Windows delivers the associated interrupt to a processor. When an interrupt is delivered to a processor, the system does not create a new thread to service the interrupt. Instead, Windows interrupts an existing thread for the short time that is necessary for the service routine to handle the interrupt. When the interrupt-related processing is complete, the system returns the thread to its original owner.
Plug and Play and power management events should be related to a well-defined task. Drivers should not be required to track system state to determine how to respond to a particular event. • The frameworks should provide default behavior for a rich set of Plug and Play and power features, including resource rebalancing, device stop, device removal, device ejection, fast resume, shutdown of idle devices, and device wake-up by external signals. • A driver should be able to override any framework-supplied defaults.
How to Handle Nonfatal Errors WDF drivers call WDF methods for many different purposes. Many of these function calls can fail: • Sometimes the error is so serious that the driver cannot recover. Such fatal errors cause UMDF to crash the host process and cause KMDF to issue a bug check. • Some errors are less serious and do not affect device or driver operation to the extent that the driver cannot recover. In that case, the function reports the nature of the error to the driver by returning an appropriate status value-an HRESULT value for UMDF drivers or an NTSTATUS value for KMDF drivers.
