How to complete request in SCSI miniport?

some other media (memory from NonPagedPool or just a file/partition on the
existing disk drive). I have a little problem with it. All commands except
SCSIOP_READ and SCSIOP_WRITE i did implement directly in XxxStartIo()

...) and ScsiPortNotification( NextRequest ... ) works fine when called
from XxxStartIo(), but seems do nothing when called from
Executive's work thread. SCSIPORT does not see completion and all time
reset's SCSI bus and delays delivering of next commands... What's going
