Diff between WdfSpinLockAcquire method and alloc ndis spinlock API's RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    There are few synchronization API's defined in windows driver kit framework and also in NDIS stack based API's

    What is the difference between them ?

    Is it like the NDIS based frameworks and windows driver based frameworks are totally different ?
