APAR Error Description / Circumvention

D/T3584 may return bad inventory data. When this happens, the
IBM i tape device driver ends up mounting the wrong cartridge.
This may expose the end user to potentially overwriting good
data on the wrong cartridge.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA41879' :
-------------------------------
With this fix applied, the LIC code will perform additional
checks and do additional error recovery to ensure the correct
cartridge is mounted.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA41879' :
----------------------------------
None.
