pixman-filter: Speed up BOX/BOX filter

The convolution of two BOX filters is simply the length of the
interval where both are non-zero, so we can simply return width from
the integral() function because the integration region has already
been restricted to be such that both functions are non-zero on it.

This is both faster and more accurate than doing numerical integration.

This patch is based on one by Bill Spitzak


with these changes:

- Rebased to not assume any changes in the arguments to integral().

- Dropped the multiplication by scale

- Added more details in the commit message.
