Implement EXPRYINT on distributed platforms

On z/OS it is possible to set this QM attribute to manage the expiration scan. Due to it being an attribute, it can easily be viewed and modified through runmqsc and even PCF. On distributed platforms, the alternative is setting it through the qm.ini file, which is far less visible. Would be a nice addition to also have this attribute there as well.

    We do not think it is likely that moving this tuning parameter to a queue manager attribute will be high enough prioirity to be implemented in the next couple of years.
