RE: Max Transfer length

Yes … fix it!!!

The miniport could truncate the data to a MAX of 256K, giving the app writer
the word rather quickly when the customer starts complaining about lost
data. There’s nothing I know of that would prevent the miniport from
breaking the data up into multiple data Packets on the hardware, if the
hardware will support it, but that can be a really royal pain. Other than
that, the only way to CONTROL what the app sends you is to have a very
serious talk with the app writer, possibly truncating said writers paycheck.

We have the developed the custom application, hence the driver understands
the Io sent by the app.

Is there a way to control the IO request size sent by the application?
