Something like this (decision about which pixels in the output space correspond
to the zero padding source pixels) is done in 'pad_repeat_get_scanline_bounds'
function here for the nearest scaling:

This function could be also used for Y axis to skip whole top/bottom padding

If I understand it correctly, Soeren suggests moving/duplicating this or
similar logic into some common code which would run before fast paths and
shrink the output region if possible.

The discussed patch deals with the nearest filter only, so antialiased edges
are not involved there.

Anyway, right now I'm actually working on a similar function specifically for
bilinear scaling, which would detect 5 zones:

    left-padding, transition-zone, only image, transition-zone, right-padding

When handling the pixels exclusively from the image itself, bilinear scanline
processing code can run at full speed. Left padding and right padding for NONE
repeat can be handled in a similar way as for nearest scaling (we can provide
source top/bottom scanline pointers pointing to a small zero filled buffer and
set 'unit_x' parameter to 0 in order to prevent it from advancing forward).
Transition zones are going to be a bit more tricky because a single extra
boolean hint argument will not help, and probably some kind of additional
optional mask buffers will be required to be passed to the scanline
processing function.

But I want to implement fast SIMD optimized bilinear scaling only for
a8r8g8b8/x8r8g8b8/r5g6b5 formats, SRC operator and PAD repeat first. So I'm
just going to ignore NONE repeat related issues initially :)

And in the case of bilinear scaling, left-padding and right-padding zones
could be removed from the output region too.
