No, you are right, it does lose that optimization. However, nothing
actually hits it. Cairo's solid images are invariably 1x1R with a
format of x8r8g8b8, which means this:
if (PICT_FORMAT_TYPE (pSrc->format) != PICT_TYPE_A)
is hit and the optimization is never triggered.
What cairo actually does from time to time, is ADDing a solid white
image onto an a8 destination, and that would benefit from this
optimization. Adding it to pixman is actually pretty straightforward:
+ if (op == PIXMAN_OP_ADD &&
+ (src->common.flags & FAST_PATH_IS_OPAQUE) &&
+ (dst->common.extended_format_code == PIXMAN_a8))
+ for (i = 0; i < n_traps; ++i)
+ pixman_trapezoid_t *trap = &(traps[i]);
+ if (!pixman_trapezoid_valid (trap))
+ pixman_rasterize_trapezoid (dst, trap, 0, 0);
though I'd like to get it covered by tests before adding it.
A similar optimization for adding solid black images would be
possible, but would require detecting an additional
FAST_PATH_SOLID_BLACK flag in compute_image_info(). It doesn't look
like anything would actually benefit from it though.
