I'm not cairo maintainer, but I think glitz needs some improvements
before we can be apply this patch. I currently working to improve error
management in glitz especially when we access a resource which is not
available anymore.

I'm waiting for this issue to be resolved associated with my account
so I can commit my modifications on freedesktop git and to create my own
cairo branch.

All patch and glitz improvements are welcome, I'll take a look at your
git repos, to review and apply your patches in upstream.
