Returns an IPC event pool handle to the driver.

  • This call must be used for IPC handles previously obtained with zeEventPoolGetIpcHandle.

  • Upon call, driver may release any underlying resources associated with the IPC handle. For instance, it may close the file descriptor contained in the IPC handle, if such type of handle is being used by the driver.

  • However, if the original event pool has been created for a sub-device, then the event pool returned by this call cannot be used on a device containing any number of sub-devices, and must be used only in a sub-device.
