Priorities of application profiles should be honored by application group when doing recovery

When combining several application profiles with differenct priorities into an application group, these should be taken into account when a recovery plan is executed so that the objects in the highest prioritised profile are reovered first.
Today the objects from different profiles are spread across the recover jobs instead of keeping the highest prioritised in one job.

Today all recover jobs are are run as a serial group and only when that has completed are jobs for rebuild index and check data executed. So all objects wait.

One of the first actions in the "introjob" is to set status of all objects to UT. Not until all objects have been recovered and rebuilt/checked are the objects started in RW.

The end result is that it is not possible to recover critical data first using application groups.
