Adadbs Deallocate by cylinders

The DEALLOCATE function of the ADADBS utility is accepting values for the size parameters (ACSIZE | AC2SIZE | DSSIZE | NISIZE | UISIZE) only in units of RABN blocks.
Most other utilities and functions allow the provision of size values in blocks or cylinders. Even ADADBS ALLOCATE honors both units for the size parameters.
It would be way more practical and homogenous to have that for ADADBS DEALLOCATE, too.
The utlity should get enhanced accordingly.
