APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
After TCP/IP is restarted, packet rules for lines that no longer
have TCP/IP interfaces defined cannot be removed.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE76187 :
-----------------------------
If rules are being unloaded from a physical interface that is
unknown to the TCP/IP stack, causing the -6 reason code failure,
the unload processing will continue. This will allow the rules
to be completely removed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE76187 :
--------------------------------
None.
