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

                 Key: SOLR-2996
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-2996
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Hoss Man


More then a few users have gotten burned by thinking that "*" is the appropriate syntax for
"match all docs" when what it really does (unless i'm mistaken) is create a prefix query on
the default search field using a blank string as the prefix.

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
it.
