[cairo] [cairo-commit] src/cairo-skia-surface.cpp

In such a case,"return  _cairo_surface_create_in_error (_cairo_error (CAIRO_STATUS_INVALID_FORMAT));"  ( the earlier code) 
makes more sense, as it returns a NULL backend surface with the valid status result.  
Let me know if I'm missing anything.

Thanks and Best Regards,

The attached effectively reverts your change and makes this return NULL again,
but it also adds a comment explaining why this shouldn't make a difference.

What Chris meant is: The old code returned NULL and that is the right thing to
do. The calling function has to be able to handle NULL and fall back in this
case. But if you return an error surface, no fallback happens and the error is
propagated. And implementing the fallback here in cairo-skia isn't necessary and
would be inconsistent with other backends.

This isn't a git formatted patch on purpose. Someone else can handle this.
