Windbg support for NTFS Stack Swapping?

rod_widdowsonrod_widdowson Member - All Emails Posts: 971
At the latest IFS plugfest event Neal mentioned that NTFS swaps stacks for
create operations. I am now debugging such a situation and cannot persuade
windbg to display the 'old stack'.

I'm using windbg (x64) Version "Windbg:6.6.0007.5" which appears to be the
latest and greatest avaipable from the downloads area.

I know that at Plugfest the windbg could deal with stack swapping, so there
must either have been newer version, or I'm missing something (glorious
detail below).

Any suggestions?

Here is the stack immediate before the call to KiSwapKernelStackAndExit
