Is there anything needed for ACF2 to support IBM apar OA50748?

Environment

Release:
Component: ACF2MS

Resolution

IBM apar OA50748 made changes related to the performance for AES 256 password encryption. ACF2 also has a performance fix in this area, SO03889. With the ACF2 fix on, the performance is much better. ACF2 does not need a fix to match what IBM did as we use an internal password cache.
