sp_BlitzFirst: add @OutputTableNameBlitzWho parameter #2159

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
I've had a couple of clients in a row whose plan cache was essentially useless due to apps sending in unparameterized queries, and they wanted to log sp_BlitzWho to table every X minutes rather than sp_BlitzCache. That way they could capture which queries were running during multiple samples, and even get their live query plans along the way.

Describe the solution you'd like
Add @OutputTableNameBlitzWho, and pass that (and the database & schema params) to sp_BlitzWho, which already has those as input parameters. Pass these during the normal calls to sp_BlitzWho - no need to run additional calls - and make sure sp_BlitzWho returns the output to the console as well as logging to table (not either/or) so that it has no changes to the interactive mode.

Are you ready to build the code for the feature?

In the process of coding this, identified a couple of related things:

sp_BlitzWho needed a new @CheckDateOverride parameter that works the same way it does in sp_BlitzCache, which led me to find...

sp_BlitzCache's output table was ignoring @CheckDateOverride parameter. That's because we're now using @SortOrder = 'all', which calls sp_BlitzCache a few times, and we weren't passing @CheckDateOverride in each time we called it. As a result, the query outputs in the sp_BlitzCache table couldn't be joined to the sp_BlitzFirst result. Fixed.

Add warning for rows in sys.index_resumable_operations. Closes #2010.

* Fix collation error. (#2014)

* #2015 sp_BlitzCache sorting in Azure SQL DB (#2016)

Instead of checking version numbers, look at sys.all_columns for the grant and spill columns. Closes #2015.

* #2024 sp_BlitzQueryStore s.is_cursor error (#2025)

Changed alias on a temp table to match other nearby aliases. Closes #2024.

* #1944 sp_BlitzIndex ignore databases (#2029)

Adds new IgnoreDatabases parameter, and skips databases with >100 partitions. Closes #1944.

* #2009 sp_BlitzFirst call BC differently (#2030)

Use SkipAnalysis = 1, SortOrder = all when calling sp_BlitzCache. Closes #2009.

* #2026 sp_BlitzCache show multiple plan count (#2031)

Closes #2026.

* #2017 sp_Blitz Evaluation Edition expiration check (#2032)

Closes #2019.

* Add END in the right spot for IF @Help = 1 (#2035)

The END for IF @Help = 1 was in the wrong place, making the procedure a no-op *unless* you also specify @Help = 1.

* edit hyperlink (#2056)

* add @OutputType = 'XML' (#2048)

* Update sp_blitzcache to avoid arithmetic overflow errors (#2046)

Updated sp_blitzcache to avoid arithmetic overflow errors - tabel definitions had changed to BIGINT but the actual logic in this section still casted values as money which was breaking the ceiling for this on our setup.  I've pretty much blanket chantged everything except averages to be bigint and have been running for a few days with no failrues since so looks ok and worth someone who knows what they're doing casting an eye over it!

* Update sp_ineachdb.sql (#2061)

Added 2 Variables 
@SQLVersion: This was implemented so that large organizations with SQL Server 2008 and R2 can use this sproc.  Currently without this change SQL Server versions 2008 and 2008R2 will error with the following.  Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_ineachdb, Line 176
Invalid object name 'sys.dm_hadr_database_replica_states'.

@ServerName:  This was added to account for VMware SnapShots at times @@ServerName will either come up NULL or with old server name.  CONVERT(sysname, SERVERPROPERTY('ServerName')) is a better option and reduces minor nuisances.  

Feel free to blend in the code if you feel this brings value to the project.
