[plugin-container] with two or more AS7 host controllers in inventory, a full discovery scan takes an unacceptably long time

Description of problem: I am facing performance issue. Default timeout for Manual Autodiscovery is 10minutes. When I have 2 EAPs on same host (and one of them runs in Domain mode) detailed autodiscovery mostly fails because of timeout. If it does not fail it finishes close to 10 minutes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible:almost always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. stand up at least 2 EAP6 instances on same host (more is better) I am working with 1 standalone and 1 domain instance
2. stand up agent, import whole platform with all children
3. wait 'till everyting is imported (this can take quite a long time 5-10minutes)
4. run manual autodiscovery on platform with 2 EAPs
Actual results: autodiscovery takes almost 10 minutes, sometimes it fails because of default timeout. This is too much. I was observing machine when discovery was running and there are no symptoms of overloading, average CPU usage was at 4%.
Expected results: Autodiscovery must be much faster. I suspect as7plugin. Without imported AS7 servers discovery runs pretty fast. Solution would be to implement discovery of each subsystem to run in parallel - but this might be very complicated and might introduce new issues.
Additional info: I was tcpdumping requests sent by agent to EAP6 and really, plugin was requesting both EAPs for all 10 minutes. But it is hard to determine whether requests came from discovery scan or usual availability. When observing requests when discovery is not running, plugin is sending them all the time anyway. This has become an issue when more AS7 subsystems have been implemented to as7plugin.

Ignore above hash, it was local.
Correct release/jon3.1.x commit has for the cherry pick commit:
Longest auto-discovery for 1 domain and 1 standalone (in full ha mode) was ~4 mins, 1 domain and 1 standalone (default mode) is ~1 min min, less than 2 EAPserver - are ~1 or less.
