set owner of files created in ifs to group profile (IFS security)
(i know this is old and might interfere with POSIX APis but it still is important)
when a user profile has grpprf(someprf) owner(*grpprf) and creates an object in IFS (e.g. with CPYTOIMPF), the IFS file has owner (theprofile) and primary group (the grpprofile). So the storage used is not added to the group profile but to the user profile which sometimes does impact storage restriction for group profiles.
A CHGOWN NEWOWN(grpprf) to this file is rejected with CPFA0A2 as soon as "grpprf" is group profile for any user profile (IIRC due to POSIX API). In my opinion this should be changed or at least allowed as the group profile is nothing special than a storage holding user profile in that case.
There is a very annoying workaround of
a) Create the object b) find group profile for current user profile c) CHGPGP NEWPGP(*none) d) CHGOWN NEWOWN(grpprf)
but this can be annoying in CL programs as one first must find group profile and then run c) and d)
to be consistent with owner handling on qsys.lib objects, the IFS interface should be adjusted to do the same ownership handling.
