There's nothing fancy about the intended algorithm ... leaving aside
the optimization mentioned above, what it is supposed to do is return
a rectangle which is the bounding box of the intersection of:

 - The surface extents
 - The clip region
 - The extents of the clip surface, if any. (surface->clip.rect)
(Careful, you can have *both* a clip region and a clip surface)

_cairo_gstate_clip_extents() could do all of that itself. It didn't
before and still doesn't.
