KiExitDispatcher, you saw that
KiProcessThreadWaitList is called to process any threads in the deferred ready list. It is here that the boost information passed by the caller is processed. This is done by looping through each
DeferredReady thread, unlinking its wait blocks (only
Bypassed blocks are unlinked), and setting two key values in the kernel’s thread control block:
AdjustIncrement. The reason is one of the two
Adjust possibilities seen earlier, and the increment corresponds to the boost value.
KiDeferredReadyThread is then called. This makes the thread ready for execution by running two algorithms: the quantum and priority selection algorithm (which you are about to see in two parts) ...
