Generate PDFs with correct font names

Cairo exports font names in their original form. But these can be wrong, they
can sometimes contain white space characters or PDF/PostScript delimiter
characters. Such fonts are not common but they appear.

This can cause a problem when you are printing such file in evince. The
printing fails during processing of an intermediate PDF because there are
delimiter characters where they shouldn't be.

Attached patch escapes PostScript names of fonts (ps_name variable) right after
these are loaded. It was already case for TrueType and OpenType fonts but not
for pure CFF fonts. Type1 fonts were just shortened to the last correct
