introduction to exported driver data
This section describes the data definitions (global variables)
a developer needs to include in a device driver
prior to DDI 8.
The kernel accesses these global variables in order to find out
information about the driver and its properties.
The variables defined in this section must have specific names
in order for the kernel to be able to find them.
for a description of the naming convention.
Any private routines and variables defined by a driver or module,
except for named entry point routines (see
should be declared as static.
Global data definitions and named entry point routines
are used only in DDI versions prior to version 8.
