Temporary fix

Comments

  • This APAR has been seen to cause overlays to pages of storage,
    especially ESQA storage, whose address corresponds to the first
    word of a PSW.  For example, overlays have been observed to the
    page at 070C0000 in storage, the page at 078D1000 in storage,
    etc.  Since these storage addresses tend to be within above the
    line SQA where various critical system control blocks live, the
    symptoms of the overlay can be unpredictable, and the impact can
     be significant.  In the case of an overlay at one of these
    "PSW-like addresses", the overlay content typically has the hex
    byte value X'E8' at offset +X'31' into the page, and many zeros
    beginning at offset +X'54' into the page.
