Re: [ntdev] INVALID_WORK_QUEUE_ITEM ((ULONG)0x00000096L) Documentat ion

STOP: 0x00000096 (parameter, parameter, parameter, parameter)
This message occurs when KeRemoveQueue removes a queue entry whose flink or blink field is null. This is almost always called by code misusing worker thread work items, but any queue misuse can cause this. The rule is that an entry on a queue may only be inserted on the list once. When an item is removed from a queue, its flink field is set to NULL. This bugcheck occurs when remove queue attempts to remove an entry, but the flink or blink field is NULL. In order to debug this problem, you need to know the queue being referenced. If the queue is one of the EX worker queues (ExWorkerQueue), then the item being removed is a WORK_QUEUE_ITEM (see ex.h). This bug check assumes that this is the case. The bugcheck ex parameters are designed to help identify the driver misusing the queue item.
