Just for a quick reference, the ELF/Unix conventions are available at
(among other places):


The Microsoft conventions can be found at:

(If the link doesn't work, try googling for "x64 calling conventions").

In any case, thank you for the excellent implementation of the NDIS API!
I was genuinely impressed by how everything seemed to work so easily
after I had fixed the few minor amd64 issues.

With no knowledge of any NDIS or Windows programming, in two evenings I
managed to get things working, just by trying things out and figuring
out (mostly by disassembling, googling and educated guesses) what was
going wrong. ;)

If you're ever in Finland, I'd be happy to buy you a drink or ten. :)
The same applies to other FreeBSD contributors, as well!
