make "q=*" not suck in the lucene and edismax parsers

                 Key: SOLR-2996

since it seems very unlikely that anyone has a genuine usecase for making a prefix query with
a blank prefix, we should change the default behavior of the LuceneQParser and EDismaxQParsers
(and any other Qparsers that respect *:* if i'm forgetting them) to treat this situation the
same as *:*.  we can offer a (local)param to force the old behavior if someone really wants
