    Windows: CcPurge range modified by non-cached write
    When a non-cached non-paging write occurs, the update bypasses the
    Windows cache.  As a result any cached data in the modified range is
    now invalid and must be purged.
    CcPurgeCacheSection is known to trigger some filter drivers to open
    the file from a worker thread.  To avoid a deadlock on the
    Fcb->NPFcb->Resource that resource must be dropped.  Holding the
    SectionObjectResource exclusive is sufficient to protect against races
    with other writes, reads and SetEndOfFile operations.  While purging the
    cache prior to calling the service might be more desireable, it cannot be
    done safely without violating the lock hierarchy.  Therefore, the purge is
    performed after any call to the service completes.
