You can use -log_view and not change your code instead of adding this (this
is the first time I have seen PetscLogDefaultBegin).

The default PETSc timers will give you data on parts of the GAMG setup.
(look for "GAMG" and PAPt). There is also a line in the log data for
KSPSetup. This is mostly GAMG setup.

The tricky part is getting the solve time without the setup. You can call
KSPSetup(ksp) to get pure solve times in the KSPSolve line.

The next step, if you like, is to create a timer (PetscLogEventRegister)
and then Begin and End that event around a KSPSetup, or PCSetup, call to
get a line in the log data with what you want, but that should be the same
as what is measured by PETSc.
