Windows 7 Kernel Mode Drivers Overview and Operations : KMDF I/O Model (part 2)
The WDFREQUEST object is the KMDF representation of an IRP. When an I/O request arrives, the I/O handler creates a WDFREQUEST object, queues the object, and eventually passes the object to the driver in its I/O callback function.
Windows 7 Kernel Mode Drivers Overview and Operations : KMDF I/O Model (part 1) - I/O Request Handler
The I/O request handler dispatches I/O requests to the driver, manages I/O cancellation and completion, and works with the Plug and Play/power handler to ensure that the device state is compatible with performing device I/O.
Windows 7 Kernel Mode Drivers Overview and Operations : KMDF Object Model
Each object exports methods (functions) and properties (data) that drivers can access and is associated with object-specific events, which drivers can support by providing event callbacks. The objects themselves are opaque to the driver.
Windows 7 Kernel Mode Drivers Overview and Operations (part 2) - Device Objects and Driver Roles
Depending on the design of the device and the other drivers in the device stack, a driver might assume one or more of these roles. Each Plug and Play device has one function driver and one bus driver, but can have any number of filter drivers.
