"Reorg force all" should kill all existing (active or inactive) threads which belong to the object which would be reorganized

we have many tables which are changed and selected 24 hours a day - 7 days a week. So this tables need more reorgs than other not so much changed tables but it is not possible to make a reorg (force all) because there are Spufi User with autocommit off which are inactive on the table. Also we are in the changing process from whatever to UTS which is also done by a reorg.

And here the biggest thing about (imho) the badest solution we have. We shut down the whole Company (not only z/OS) start one member make all the roergs which are needed after a while and for UTS and start the Company again. The shutdown is about 1,5 hour also the start. So thats real pain. Also if we kill a thread which is not directly on the object it would be better than this massive outtake of the whole IT infrastructure.
