ZwCreateFile Problem

Hello,
I have problems with opening files with hard links, the call
never returns back. What could be wrong. And I found that when
the call re-enters my driver the path name in the file object is changed
to the hard link file’s name.

Can any one please shed some light on how to avoid this.

This dead lock happens only when the system stars up. I use ZwCreateFile
to open the file, I even check the IRQ level. When I pass down the
Request the thread dead locks. ( similar to calling ZwCreateFile in high
IRQ level ). I can open the file the first two times when I get the
Create request, the third time I can not open the file. And I can Open
the file any number of times after the system has started. Can any one
tell me what exactly is happening here and how to avoid this.

thanks
kumar
