APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When doing a GO SAVE 21 to do a full system save, when trying to
save a file, message CPF8111 is received and the save is ended.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA44355 :
-----------------------------
This is caused because of conversion of some internal structures
in the data space (part of the file) in certain uncommon
instances.  A pointer in the converted structure does not get
set properly in this specific instance and that pointer fails
sanity check during save processing.  The PTF checks for this
specific conversion issue at the time of the save and corrects
the pointer and prevents the object from being damaged without
requiring an IPL to do first touch processing.  This PTF will
NOT fix any object already marked soft damaged because of the
issue.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA44355 :
--------------------------------
None.
