I am reading MS avscan sample and noticed that they call FsRtlEnterFileSystem/KeEnterCriticalRegion not before ExAcquireResource***Lite. They call FsRtlEnterFileSystem/KeEnterCriticalRegion in context of PostCreate, PreCleanup and InstanceSetupCallback. My understanding was that in general we don’t need to call FsRtlEnterFileSystem/KeEnterCriticalRegion in minifilter. In filesystem we call FsRtlEnterFileSystem before acquiring file resources for thread to not became suspended.
So when should we care about thread suspension in minifilter ?
