Notes: This routine sets up an instance of NETWONLS with nonlinear left preconditioning. It differs from other

\sum_{i=0}^{N_b}J_b({X^b_{converged}})^{-1}J(X + \sum_{i=0}^{N_b}(X^b_{converged} - X^b))

which is the ASPIN preconditioned matrix. Similar solvers may be constructed by having matrix-free differencing of nonlinear solves per linear iteration, but this is far more efficient when subdomain sparse-direct preconditioner factorizations are reused on each application of J_b^{-1}.
