RE: Can we declare a variable as 'int' in the driver -???

That is true, but as the variable was declared as int (should be signed),
0xffffffff is -1. The code generated by the compiler for the var >= 0
should do a signed compare.

Surely, it will be 0 - and will overflow to 0xffffffff (which is MAX_ULONG
which is > 0) on next iteration.
