There were no regressions in the batik tests on Chromium on Win32 or Webkit on

I'm pretty sure that those other platforms will need this matrix in order to
do gradient text correctly.  It's only CG that won't need it, since it uses the
gradient later in teardown() to fill a rect.  I can change it to be skia-only,
if you still want, but I'm pretty sure you're going to need this matrix for
Cairo as well (I'm assuming that's what you're worried about).

You're saying that we could remove the skia-specific code in SVGPaintServer?
That sounds good, but is orthogonal to this patch.

Basically, the correct way to do gradient text is to scale up the gradient to 
the appropriate size (the bounding box, in this case) before rendering the
Canvas was already doing that (m_p0 was 0,0 and m_p1 was 600,600 in this test),
so when I added code in a previous CL to scale up the gradient in SkiaFontWin,
it was getting scaled twice.  So I removed my previous code to scale the
gradient (in SkiaFontWin), and allowed the SVG path to set the matrix from 
the bounding box instead.

I don't think there's any other way to fix it, since the lower-level 
rendering code needs that bounding box in order to correctly scale the 
gradient.  And the lower level doesn't know if it has been already set
(as in the canvas case) or unset (as in the SVG case).  The only reason 
CG doesn't need the matrix is that it doesn't use the gradient during 
text rendering; it applies it in teardown().
