    ****************************************************************
    DFSORT has been modified to support DB2 Utilities additional
    offload to zIIP processors when available.
    
    DFSORT will allow offload to zIIP processors in the memory
    object sort path for fixed length records when invoked by
    DB2 Utilities with support for additional zIIP offload.
    When this additional zIIP offload takes place, it will be
    indicated by DFSORT with
    
    MSGICE256I DFSORT CODE IS ELIGIBLE TO USE ZIIP FOR THIS
               DB2 UTILITY RUN.
    
    Exploitation of this enhancement requires DB2 APAR PK85889.
    If PK85889 is not applied then the enhancement delivered by
    this APAR is not enabled.
