APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
When the tape device driver tries to send a command to itself as
part of the current command that is running, the new command
will not run because it is waiting for the current command to
complete. The tape device driver is now stuck waiting on itself
and will not process any new commands.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA47759' :
-------------------------------
The code has been changed so the tape device driver does not try
to send a new command to itself while it is running a command
that requires the new command to complete before the currently
running command can complete.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA47759' :
----------------------------------
None.
