    Is there an easy way to track which module or driver that is allocating driver locked memory? The only way I can think of is using a kernel debugger and then setting breakpoints for the functions in the memory manager used for locking memory and then hopefully the name of the driver or module will be on the stack. Is there an easier way than using this approach?

    @Hans: Yes, you could do it through the debugger. I quickly looked through the code and I didn't see any ETW events around the driver locked memory. If there is an easier way than debugging it, I'm not aware of it.

    Is it too much to ask for professionalism while on camera ?

    What did you find to be unprofessional?

    @Adrienne: a professional reporter is not a distraction , but rather puts the focus on the interviewee and the story.

    @RobHouston What distracted you?

    Nice try, but there's no need.  Either it will be toned down in front of the camera just by asking nicely (with no need for a flame war) or he really is just desperate for attention.       

    I think he'll do the professional thing.

    I'm just trying to understand what you're referencing. I guess I'm not seeing whatever you're seeing.
