lcm-mods: Modifications required for Schwarz alternating method in Albany (LCM)

James Willenbring requested to merge lcm-mods into develop

Created by: lxmota

This proposed changes to LOCA and Piro are necessary for the implementation of the Schwarz alternating method in Albany, specifically LCM.

This is really important for LCM, as the Schwarz method is currently being used for production runs in concurrent multiscale calculations for coupling small scale microstructure to macroscopic models.

I understand that they are not the cleanest changes, in that they expose some internals, but they are needed.
