Default New BSOD/Critical Windows Error codes in Windows 8

Windows 8 added a bunch of new error codes, I've tried to get information out of them (some from Microsoft website), and I've tried to make some kind of table so that these new codes could be added to the list.

WIN32K_HANDLE_MANAGER (0x137): I couldn't find anything.
GPIO_DRIVER_CONTROLLER_ERROR (0x138): Indicates a fatal error in GPIO (general purpose I/O) class extension driver.
KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE (0x139): Kernel has detected corruption in a critical data structure.
KERNEL_MODE_HEAP_CORRUPTION (0x13A): No officially documented info. Best guess is that kernel has detected corruption in critical memory heap. Seems to have happened among some other codes.
PASSIVE_INTERRUPT_ERROR (0x13B): Couldn't find anything.
INVALID_IO_BOOST_STATE (0x13C): I could find only one assumption, which says that it is a bug check indicating a failure in a new level of driver verification. IO-boosting is applied to a thread, which dies before boosting is yielded.
(0x13E, 0x13F): Not used.
STORAGE_DEVICE_ABNORMALITY_DETECTED (0x140): Seems like a hardware issue caused by faulty SSD (or any other storage device).
VIDEO_ENGINE_TIMEOUT_DETECTED (0x141): 0x117 implies an adapter-wide reset: 0x141 implies a reset within specific nodes of an adapter. Caused by timeout in video driver recovery.
VIDEO_TDR_APPLICATION_BLOCKED (0x142): Name implies an application being blocked from video driver. Not sure though, why would it be worthy for a bug check.
PROCESSOR_DRIVER_INTERNAL (0x143): Processor Power Management (PPM) driver encountered a fatal error.
BUGCODE_USB3_DRIVER (0x144): USB3 driver or device has a bug. This code is used for all bug checks of any USB3 driver. Similar to BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER (0xFE).
SECURE_BOOT_VIOLATION (0x145): Secure boot policy has an incorrect signature.
NDIS_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO_ILLEGALLY_TRANSFERRED (0x146): NDIS driver or any driver using it may have a bug.
ABNORMAL_RESET_DETECTED (0x147): No info found.
IO_OBJECT_INVALID (0x148): No info found.
REFS_FILE_SYSTEM (0x149): Internal error in ReFS (Resilient File System). Seems to be exclusive for Windows Server 2012 (only that has ReFS implemented).
KERNEL_WMI_INTERNAL (0x14A): No info found.
SOC_SUBSYSTEM_FAILURE (0x14B): Unrecoverable error on SoC (System-on-a-Chip) system.
FATAL_ABNORMAL_RESET_ERROR (0x14C): No info found.
EXCEPTION_SCOPE_INVALID (0x14D): No info found.
SOC_CRITICAL_DEVICE_REMOVED (0x14E): No info found. Name seems to cite a critical device removal in SOC (system-on-a-chip)
PDC_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT (0x14F): No info found. Theoretically cites a timeout of PDC (primary domain controller) watchdog.
Any error with code over 0x150, except for 0x360, 0x420 and 0x20001 appear only in Windows 8.1.
INVALID_PUSH_LOCK_FLAGS (0x152): No info found.
KERNEL_LOCK_ENTRY_LEAKED_ON_THREAD_TERMINATION (0x153): No info found. People seem to have this problem with eset anti-virus.
UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION (0x154): Exception handler did not handle a exception in Store properly.
OS_DATA_TAMPERING (0x155): Critical data in RAM is tampered, or not enough memory.
ILLEGAL_IOMMU_PAGE_FAULT (0x158): No info found.
HAL_ILLEGAL_IOMMU_PAGE_FAULT (0x159): No info found.
SDBUS_INTERNAL_ERROR (0x15A): Related hotfix. Indicates an internal error in SDBUS (native SD bus driver).
PDC_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT_LIVEDUMP (0x15C): Same as 0x14F, but a live dump has been captured.
SOC_SUBSYSTEM_FAILURE_LIVEDUMP (0x15D): Same as 0x14B, but a live dump has been captured.
BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER_LIVE_DUMP (0x15E): Same as 0x7C, but a live dump has been captured.
WIN32K_ATOMIC_CHECK_FAILURE (0x160): No info found.
LIVE_SYSTEM_DUMP (0x161): No info found.
KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_INVALID_LOCK_RELEASE (0x162): Spinlock is released in an invalid way, such as a fast mutex being released without being acquired. AX64 Time Machine drivers may cause this issue.
XBOX_360_SYSTEM_CRASH (0x360): No info found.
XBOX_360_SYSTEM_CRASH_RESERVED (0x420): No info found. This code and the preceding one have incited rumors of possible Xbox 360 emulation.
HYPERVISOR_ERROR (0x20001): Internal error in Hyper-V virtualization module. Node Interleave setting in BIOS of Dell computers may be a cause. Here is an official Microsoft Hotfix for this BSOD in case of Linux VM.

Outside of official data, I wouldn't say any of the others are reliable sources of information.
