Support *ALLUSR and *ALL for QUSLMBR API

The QUSLMBR API supports a full library name, *LIBL or *CURLIB. However there is a need to "find members" on the system so *ALLUSR and even *ALL should be supported to enable that capability.

Use Case:

Using QUSLMBR I want to locate on the system where member XYZ0003 is located. It could be because of archiving or version control, but it could appear in many source files in various libraries. With "hundreds" or more libraries on the system, *LIBL doesn't work, therefore *ALLUSR would be a viable solution, along with *ALL (although *ALL isn't really needed).

    Rob, I've utilized that from time to time for a few years and is why is switched back to using the QUSLMBR API which I've now created as MBR_LIST SQL Tools Function. I also included the two options I requested so I'm good now. But SYSPARTITIONSTAT isn't exactly a stellar performer so I avoid it..

    One could also query syspartitionstat
    select *
    from qsys2.syspartitionstat
    where system_table_member = 'ORD500';

    IBM does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.

    We understand that this API extension would be useful for clients that use API interfaces. However, the database team has a very long list of higher priority requirements, so this request is not likely to be implemented anytime soon.
