If I'm not entirely off-track, I think this isn't quite right yet.
I assume you want to release the semaphore in all cases some bytes
have been read or written, right?

If so, this should cover the STATUS_THREAD_CANCELED and
STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW cases as well.  But then again, the
ReleaseSemaphore calls are a bit spread out over the calls.

I took the liberty to create a followup patch to the attached one.  It
merges all cases potentially reading or writing some bytes into a single
if branch, so only a single ReleaseSemaphore should be required.  I
dropped STATUS_MORE_ENTRIES because it's not an error, subsumed under
NT_SUCCESS, and IIUC, never emitted by the underlying code.

I attached the patch to this mail, can you please check it?
