This macro returns the base address of an instance of a structure of a specified type if it has the address of a member within the containing structure.
PCHAR CONTAINING_RECORD( IN PCHAR Address , IN TYPE Type , IN PCHAR Field );
Returns a pointer to the base of the structure containing Field.
This macro is called to determine the base address of a structure whose type is known when the caller has a pointer to a field inside such a structure. This macro is useful for symbolically accessing other fields in a structure of known type.
A driver that calls this macro can be running at any IRQ level as long, as the structure is resident. If a page fault might occur, callers must be at or below IRQ level APC_LEVEL.
