The vector and matrix (row) maps must match. This is assumed for any method
that I can think of that takes a matrix and a vector(s). This will dictate
if its MPI and the data layout.
Perhaps there is some ambiguity as to whether it is the row or column map,
but they are usually the same for a square matrix and MatGetDiagonal makes
no sense for a rectangular matrix.
