Yes, that would be awesome.

No, one of them is actually from me (the third patch, unsurprisingly).

Patch #1 is from cairo bugzilla, see the link you gave me in [1].

Patch #2 (this patch) was used by Mozilla[2] back in 2010. They have [had?]
internal copy of cairo to patch, so maybe they just haven't bothered with
submitting it. Or maybe they did submit it to cairo bugzilla and it got lost
there. Who knows? Either way, the patch is trivial enough, so i wouldn't
worry about this one too much.
