[vbox-dev] [PATCH] Fix for ticket #7107

Attached is a one-liner patch for VBoxGuest.sys for Windows guest


As mentioned in the ticket, the handler for IRP_MJ_POWER may be called
at DISPATCH_LEVEL at shutdown unless DO_POWER_PAGABLE is set in the
device object.  The attached patch does just that.  Another solution is
to simply make the routine nonpaged.


I have tested this patch on Windows 7 x86 CHK (where the defect
originally reproduced) and it works here - additional testing priori to
release may be desired to confirm no unexpected side-effects.
