First off, taking a look at a non-verifier enabled kernel dump, here's our bug check as discussed:
10: kd> .bugcheck Bugcheck code 0000004A Arguments 00000000`77a1dc2a 00000000`00000002 00000000`00000000 fffff880`13695b60
0x4A bug check, essentially implying that the thread which was previously involved in a system call attempted to return to user mode at an IRQL higher than PASSIVE_LEVEL (zero  on x86 and x64).
10: kd> !irql Debugger saved IRQL for processor 0xa -- 2 (DISPATCH_LEVEL)
In this case, at the time of the crash, the IRQL was DISPATCH_LEVEL (Two  on x86 and x64).
The process involved in the IRQL raise was vsserv.exe, Bitdefender's main active protection process.
Let's also go further and dump the address of the system function involved:
10: kd> !address 0000000077a1dc2a Usage: VAD Base Address: 00000000`779d0000 End Address: 00000000`77b79000 Region Size: 00000000`001a9000 VA Type: UserRange VAD Address: 0xfffffa8020d1f830 Commit Charge: 0xd Protection: 0x7 [ReadWriteCopyExecute] Memory Usage: Section [\Windows\System32\ntdll.dll] No Change: no More info: !vad 0x779d0000
We can see its VA type is UserRange, its protection is 0x7 which implies it's R/W/X (or E).
If we run !vad on the VAD Address field, we can see frequent mention of Bitdefender:

Let's use !address and -v together to get nice verbose PTE/PFN/VAD information:

Overall, we can see vsserv.exe is listed as active and valid within the page regarding its location, as well as ntdll being involved with memory usage:

Throughout all of the 0x4A Bitdefender related crashes, the NT kernel was labeled as the fault:
Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe
Given we're seeing ntdll, we can likely imagine the reason for the NT kernel being blamed as being the fault of the crash is because most of the API from ntdll is implemented in the NT kernel variants, with this being ntkrnlmp.exe because this system has a multi-processor without physical address extension configuration.

So regarding processor #10, that's probably as far as we're going to go considering it's the bug check thread and there's no information really whatsoever.

All we can see if we're exiting user-mode code using the KiSystemServiceExit function, and we go off the rails right there - KiSystemServiceExit+0x245. This function is in charge of handling the various call-styles used to enter kernel-mode, and then returning to user-mode.
With that said, let's switch to the other processor within the system that was involved and see what's going on at the time of the crash. To find out the active processors on the specific system, we'll use !running:
10: kd> !running System Processors: (0000000000000fff) Idle Processors: (00000000000003ff) (0000000000000000) (0000000000000000) (0000000000000000) Prcbs Current (pri) Next (pri) Idle 10 fffff880038c9180 fffffa8021c85b50 ( 9) fffff880038d41c0 ................ 11 fffff8800393b180 fffffa8021c91060 ( 9) fffff880039461c0 ................
We can see our processors are #10 and #11. We've explored #10, so let's check #11. The reason 0-9 aren't listed is because they're idle.

I used knL as opposed to the other stack dump commands as I wanted to get the frame # feature for reference reasons.
Starting at frame # 2a, we can see the NtDeviceIoControlFile function calls IopXxxControlFile. The latter function appears to be undocumented, so I'm unsure as to what it does. What I do know is, the NtDeviceIoControlFile function is ultimately used to build descriptors for a driver. I imagine it's using the IopXxxControlFile function to aid in passing such to the driver.
Also, for what it's worth, although NtDeviceIoControlFile has since been superseded by DeviceIoControl, the former native function provides more information that may be beneficial to the caller (especially for debugging purposes). This is likely why Bitdefender chose to use the former function instead.
11: kd> ln nt!IopXxxControlFile (fffff800`033f3840) nt!IopXxxControlFile (fffff800`033f4650) nt!NtDeviceIoControlFile Exact matches: nt!IopXxxControlFile (<no parameter info>)
If we disassemble this function, we can wade through some of the stuff and find some of the interesting tidbits:
11: kd> u fffff800`033f3840 fffff800`033f4650 fffff800`033f3956 e845c5ffff call nt!ProbeForWrite (fffff800`033efea0) fffff800`033f39b7 e81498fdff call nt!ObReferenceObjectByHandleWithTag (fffff800`033cd1d0) fffff800`033f3b05 e84688cfff call nt!IoGetRelatedDeviceObject (fffff800`030ec350) fffff800`033f402a e8d130cdff call nt!IoGetAttachedDevice (fffff800`030c7100) fffff800`033f3c01 e88a7bcfff call nt!IoAllocateIrp (fffff800`030eb790) fffff800`033f40d1 e82af9cfff call nt!IoAllocateMdl (fffff800`030f3a00)
So after neatly putting together this disassembly of sorts, we can see that this is indeed how the NtDeviceIoControlFile function is passing on the buffer and such to the driver.
The IoAllocateMdl function in this specific case is used to ultimately associate the MDL with an IRP, which is why we call into the IoAllocateIrp function, to of course assign the IRP. IoGetAttachedDevice is called likely to return a pointer to the devobj, with help from the IoGetRelatedDeviceObject function to probably obtain the devobj from the file system driver stack.
ObReferenceObjectByHandleWithTag is called to increment the reference count of the object, and to write a four-byte value known as a "tag" so it can support object reference tracing for debugging purposes. Finally, the ProbeForWrite function is called to ensure that a user-mode buffer meets the following:
- Resides in the user-mode portion of the address space.
- Is writeable.
- Is correctly aligned.
As all appears to have went well, we can see the driver we were ultimately building and passing descriptors to/for was bdfwfpf.sys, which is Bitdefender's firewall filter driver. As it's a driver in charge of a firewall, it of course uses the WFP API (Windows Filtering Platform) to achieve its goals (not just filtering and monitoring).
We can confirm this easily by looking at the very first driver/function call after Bitdefender's firewall, which is fwpkclnt.sys. Specifically, Bitdefender's firewall driver called it to inject new/cloned data to the data stream. Directly afterwords we have calls from the Network I/O Subsystem to continue the injecting, which is because fwpkclnt.sys exports kernel-mode functions, as opposed to fwpuclnt.dll which exports and handles the user-mode side.
To handle and/or continue the injection into the data stream, it looks like DPC(s) are used to handle it by calling KeInsertQueueDpc to create a queued DPC for execution.
11: kd> !dpcs CPU Type KDPC Function 10: Normal : 0xfffffa806a7b7cb0 0xfffff88001b37630 NETIO!StreamPermitRemoveDataDpc
-- After discussion with a fellow kernel-debugger friend of mine, we also thought that the IRQL was possibly DISPATCH_LEVEL due to the multiple injections, etc, therefore Windows deferred it to a DPC. Given this possibly being the case, when the DPC was to be worked on, the system service finished but the IRQL is still DISPATCH_LEVEL. Since that was the case, we get a bug check.
We continue through netio.sys' functions regarding the data stream injection, ultimately injecting the request to the stack and going through a few tcpip.sys functions.
To continue sending the data along, NDIS' NdisSendNetBufferLists function is called, and NDIS' filter driver (which I believe is pacer.sys), called NdisFSendNetBufferLists to send the list of network data buffers back to Bitdefender's firewall driver.
Bitdefender's firewall driver then calls into NDIS' network data buffer sending functions to send the list to the user's network miniport driver, e1c62x64.sys (Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection). The network miniport driver then calls NDIS' NdisMAllocateNetBufferSGList function to obtain a scatter/gather list for the network data for the associated NET_BUFFER structure.
In order to do so, NDIS needs to call the HAL, which we can see through the function HalBuildScatterGatherList. What is supposed to happen next is, the HAL builds the scatter/gather list, and we go on through various registered miniport functions. However, this did not happen, and we go off the rails on frame #00 with a call to the miniport driver.
So, where's our problem? Frame #23:
23 fffff880`13abf680 fffff880`05c9aaf1 fwpkclnt!FwpsStreamInjectAsync0+0xcf
FwpsStreamInjectAsync0, the function in charge of injecting TCP data segments into a TCP data stream, is the issue. How so? Well, let's get dirty once again.
Using the NDIS debugging extension (!ndiskd), we can get a lot of information to help us here. On its lonesome, !ndiskd isn't too special. However, when we use !ndiskd.miniport, it gets fun.

So we know that our miniport involved in all of this was the Intel Gigabit, so let's look at that one:

We get a lot of good information, and can see that Bitdefender's firewall filter driver is/was involved with this miniport. We know this, because we saw it all happening in the stack, but this just confirms it.
Anyway, what's next? Well, let's check for any pending NBLs (NET_BUFFER_LISTS):
11: kd> !ndiskd.pendingnbls fffffa801f7b81a0 PHASE 1/3: Found 23 NBL pool(s). PHASE 2/3: Found 512 freed NBL(s). Pending Nbl Currently held by fffffa80593c82c0 fffffa801f7b81a0 - Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection [Miniport] PHASE 3/3: Found 1 pending NBL(s) of 789 total NBL(s). Search complete.
Ah ha, we have one held by the miniport driver that was involved in passing data to Bitdefender's firewall filter driver. Let's look at the pending NBL:
11: kd> !ndiskd.nbl fffffa80593c82c0 NBL fffffa80593c82c0 Next NBL NULL First NB fffffa80593c83f0 Source fffffa801fb08580 - TCPIP
From here we can take a direct look at the NBL:

What appears to be happening here is multiple NBLs in a chain are being passed, the FwpsStreamInjectAsync0 function is called to pass Bitdefender's data, and then the chain is broken as the call goes on (see the NBL next member is zeroed out/null).
Possibly a fix (in Bitdefender's case) is to avoid multiple injections inside the stream callout routine, possibly taking NBLs in a chain and calling the FwpsStreamInjectAsync0 function just ONCE for each callout routine execution. Unsure, kernel development isn't my strong point : )
A fix for user's is to install this hotfix and hope it works, as it should. Overall, maybe Bitdefender instead of making any developmental changes could just raise awareness for this issue, like creating a well explained documentation page with a link to the hotfix. I think developmental changes would be a better workaround.
