On cisc I remember that I did what you suggested (I used MODINX instead that
has x'00A2' and patched to X'00A3' into LHRI). I also had to change to
*system otherwise I got MCH6801.

Is risc code the same ?

It's difficult to understand why modsobj is blocked because from mi
reference it seems that we can only change or reset the timestamp. Is it so
dangerous ?
