Add capability to delete policy through runmqsc

Add capability to delete policy through runmqsc 

For containers MQ Configuration is performed through runmqsc commands.    If I need to remove (that is delete a policy) from a queue I can’t perform this from the runmqsc command with the remove option.   The only way I can remove the policy is to disable the last recipient:

As I don’t use setmqspl in the container world, the only option I have is to leave blank policy against a queue.

To help simplify the management of AMS policies I require the capability to enable me to remove the policy using runmqsc.
This allowing me to use the same process if I am adding, replacing, removing or deleting policies, regardless if I am doing in on prem or in container world.

    From the development team:

    DELETE POLICY already provides the required functionality. If a customer wishes to "delete" a policy object they can use DELETE POLICY... instead of SET POLICY... ACTION(REPLACE). This will delete a policy and stop it from appearing when performing a DISPLAY POLICY(*) query. However a blank policy will always appear when attempting to display a policy using anything other than (*) as AMS expects a policy to be returned in this case and so if no policy object exists a default blank policy is returned.

    We will however add some extra notes to the documentation to clarify this.
