Add REORG LONGLOBDATA for columnar tables

Currently we can create columnar tables with CLOB/LOB columns in it. What we can't do is reclaim the allocated diskspace of the CLOB/LOB columns (LOB_OBJECT_P_SIZE) in columnar tables To get an idea about how many diskspace is allocated: db2 "...

Bitemporal tables and missing highest quantiles

[Copy] Support mixed row/column environments without requiring CUR_COMMIT=ON
