You have a point, but I checked their DDK and it's not described there
(it's an alias for PVOID in their DDK). Its members appear only in our
I've been snooping a little through their ndis.sys and it seems that
their structure has some extra members, like pointers to lists of used
packets and stuff like that. I guess it's safe then to add a few
variables to help in the implementation.
I also saw another interesting thing: the MS ndis.sys doesn't have all
the functions listed in the DDK. A few of them are declared as exports
but not implemented.
