Stop error 0x9E in Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8

Not sure if this is the right fix? We've added this issue to our memory dump diagnostic which can confirm.
When you have a cluster node that is running Windows Server 2012, you may encounter a 0x9E Stop error.
This issue occurs because of lock contention between the memory manager and the Cluster service or a resource monitor when a large file is mapped into system cache.
The memory manager code was changed in order to remove this potential lock contention. This problem was first addressed in Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1. A hotfix is now available for Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.
