    ****************************************************************
    At Chinit startup, the Chinit SMF task is attached as an
    asynchronous TCB, but is dependent on some other storage
    initialization that may not have yet occurred. There is a race
    condition between the SMF task and mainline initialization where
    it's possible for the SMF task to attempt to access storage that
    has not yet been correctly initialized.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Synchronization has been added during Chinit startup to ensure
    that the necessary storage is initialized before being accessed
    by the SMF task.
