max device extension size

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Is there a max size for a deviceExtension when calling IoCreateDevice(..)?
I haven't found the trip point but when I pass a size of 1K there is no
problem while a 5K device extension causes a KMODE_EXCEPTION bugcheck (later
in the boot process).

Thanks,
