The code snippet that you paste is from the first version of this patch, which is no longer current. There is a v2 version of this patch, [PATCH v2] datapath-windows: Solved BSOD when adding OVS ports: http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/dev/2015-July/057089.html, which adds the ndisHandle check instead of the code you are referring. The v2 patch got committed.

yes, I agree. It was good catch.

My question is, do you need the additional patch you are proposing in this patch. I’ve copy pasted it for convenience below:

> +    if (ctx && ctx->magic == OVS_CTX_MAGIC) {
> +        OVS_LOG_INFO("nbl context already initialized/allocated by OVS.");
> +        return ctx;
> +    }
