    [cairo-ft] Revert "Force non-AA text when using a bitmap strike with only
scaling transform." (#13479)

    The reasoning for that commit was that fonts with bitmap strikes should be
    rendered with antialiasing off for those (hopefully) few glyphs that don't
    have a bitmap.

    However, it turns out, there are fonts that have some, but very few,
    and this changed forces non-AA rendering on them.  We now support multiple
    glyph formats per font in the Xlib backend, so backing this out to let
    glyph render as is.  Fontconfig rules can be used to force AA off on a

    This reverts commit 06af5c2891b89da28581c30afcde06c5442884db.

    [cairo-xlib] Support scale fonts with glyphs of multiple formats (#13479)

    We maintain three Xrender glyphsets per scaled font, one for each of A1,
    and ARGB32.  This is required to correctly support fonts with bitmaps for
    some glyphs but not all.
