set MAXFSSIZE Default in qm.ini

MAXFSSIZE Default is set to 2TGB.  Most file Systems are much smaller then 2TG. To use MAXFSSIZE it must be set on every single queue to a size less then size of data file system.
It would be more comfortable to set the systemwide maximum in qm.ini or as am attribute on queue manager object.

    A default maximum for each queue can already be set - either by setting the attribute on SYSTEM,.DEFAULT.LOCAL.QUEUE or by a qm.ini parameter. We do not expect to add a "total qmgr" size attribute; but you can use monitoring metrics either at the queue manager or filesystem level to check the amount of space used.
