Include repair catalog in the redirected recover

It should not be necessary to explicitely run a repair catalog after running a redirected recover. The redirected recover should adjust the version information in the catalog itself.

    Thank you for submitting this enhancement request.

    We have chosen to decline this request at this time for the following reasons:
    It is not part of the Db2 Utilities mission and strategy to combine utilities together. Db2 Utilities continues to offer the essential building blocks users need to maintain your Db2 data.

    We do offer this feature in IBM Db2 Recovery Expert. When performing redirected recovery with Db2 Recovery Expert, a REPAIR CATALOG statement will be generated to adjust the version information in the catalog.
