NOTICE:

Application of this PTF may disable or render ineffective programs that
use system memory addresses not generated by the IBM translator,
including programs that circumvent control technology designed to limit
interactive capacity to purchased levels.  This PTF may be a prerequisite
for future PTFs.  By applying this PTF you authorize and agree to the
foregoing.

This PTF is subject to the terms of the 'IBM License Agreement for Machine
Code', the terms of which were provided in a printed document that was
delivered with the machine.

SUBJECT TO ANY WARRANTIES WHICH CAN NOT BE EXCLUDED OR EXCEPT AS EXPLICITLY
AGREED TO IN THE APPLICABLE LICENSE AGREEMENT OR AN APPLICABLE SUPPORT

REGARDING THE PTF.


APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
This change provides base function to enable extensions for a
Technology Refresh.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA48527' :
-------------------------------
Additional base function is provided in this PTF.

This Technology Refresh PTF also provides a potential
performance improvement.  The IBM i IPL path code has been
adjusted to perform some coherence checks related to mainstore
only during the initial IPL of a release on a Power system that
contains this PTF.  All later Technology Refreshes and newer
releases will contain this code.  The first IPL after applying
this PTF will take the usual amount of time.  Subsequent IPLs
may no longer need to perform these same coherence checks, and
may therefore be faster.  The larger the amount of mainstore,
the greater the potential for noticeable improvement in IPL
time.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA48527' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions

None.




Special Instructions

Please ensure that you have a SAVSYS before applying this PTF.

Permanently apply any temporarily applied LIC PTFs on your partition
before applying this PTF.

This PTF must be permanently applied.

Please also load and apply the latest superseding PTF (if any) of
Distribution Requisite (DISTREQ) SI73927 to ensure required fixes
associated with this Technology Refresh PTF are also applied.


Default Instructions

THIS IS A DELAYED PTF TO BE APPLIED AT IPL TIME.
