          I believe it has less to do with actual hardware and more to do with making DRM/anticheat software function.

            Perhaps both. Not looking at it much further but definitely has to do with drivers and pnp...

            ntoskrnl: Forbid unloading a driver with running root PnP devices.
            https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...m-devicechange ie
            ntoskrnl/tests: Add some tests for WM_DEVICECHANGE.
            Not thinking they are pulling naming here and applying it to whatever they want.
