You can ignore tag altogether. It's only enabled with a special registry key (on
windows). And drivers have no way nor need to verify the tag. So I think you can
just remove that trace. I will need to think something to stop of from crashing.
Or try using wine_dbgstr_a((char*)&Tag) instead.

PS: I wasn't sure if you were using my ntoskrnl implementation or not. If you
are then could you post somewhere +ntoskrnl trace? That might be helpful. Also
it could be number of other things that this driver tries to do that ntoskrnl
has not implementation for.
