There is not an example. For low-Mach compressible, it's common to use
a preconditioner that involves a change to primitive variables and
approximate Schur complement in the pressure space. For transonic or
supersonic flows, the equations are rather strongly coupled and
fieldsplit tends to be ineffective. For such problems, it's common to
use ASM or geometric multigrid with point-block smoothers.
