APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
In the primary instance of this wait condition, SWA (Save While
Active) was running against IASP data.

Many jobs stuck waiting on IASP resident stacks. The resident
stacks are waiting on a SWA insert to complete. Due to memory
constraints the SWA insert tasks were taking a page fault which
had to be looked up in the IASP permanent directory.  Getting
the lock on a permanent directory page caused an address compare
to happen which is gets stuck waiting on the SWA stacks.

Service keywords:
resstackpool -i
SMSWAINSxx tasks
SmSaveWhileActiveNucleus

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA44526 :
-----------------------------
We will avoid turning on the address compare flag for the IASP
permanent directory pages.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA44526 :
--------------------------------
None.
