[webkit-dev] Subpixel layout - requesting help for big rebaseline

Hi Chromium folks,

Levi and Emil did a great job in implementing SubPixel Layout. I was 
looking into enabling it on WebKit EFL.
Unfortunately, the initial rebaseline for EFL would be huge. That's why 
I hesitated to enable it right away. Instead I started looking into what 
the reasons are.

I found one case where rounding should be added, here's my patch:

Landing this makes the rebaselining efforts for ports enabling subpixel 
layout smaller, so IMHO it'd accelerate adoption.
On the other hand, landing this patch requires a rebaselining for 
Chromium in the area of several thousand testcases.

I do feel the pain there. So I'd appreciate your help for getting this 
one landed. According to their comments on bugzilla, Emil and Levi 
approve the change.
