embed IS a into IS b by finding the locations in b that have the same indices as in a. If c is the IS of these locations, we have a = b*c, regarded as a composition of the corresponding ISLocalToGlobalMaps.
PetscErrorCode ISEmbed(IS a, IS b, PetscBool drop, IS *c)
|a ||- IS to embed
|b ||- IS to embed into
|drop ||- flag indicating whether to drop a's indices that are not in b.
c -local embedding indices
If some of a's global indices are not among b's indices the embedding is impossible. The local indices of a
corresponding to these global indices are either mapped to -1 (if !drop) or are omitted (if drop). In the former
case the size of c is that same as that of a, in the latter case c's size may be smaller.
The resulting IS is sequential, since the index substition it encodes is purely local.
