Thanks for your explanation. It makes a lot of sense now.

Sounds like one way to work around that would be to only store a pointer
to the kernel structure inside the NDIS object when
CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK is set, instead of the whole kernel structure

Then DriverLoader would not have to require that CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK
be disabled to function properly.
