That would only be correct if all the screen lines use the default
font.  Otherwise, the last line could be only partially visible even
if the above is zero.

If by "matrix row" you meant the glyph matrix prepared by the previous
redisplay, then using that is unreliable, because that matrix might
not be up to date.

You can see that window_scroll_pixel_based already uses the move_it_*
family of functions, which is the right way of doing this stuff --
these functions simulate redisplay without actually displaying
anything, so you can compute the metrics of anything on display using

There's already such a calculation in window_scroll_pixel_based:

      /* See if point is on a partially visible line at the end.  */
      if (it.what == IT_EOB)
        partial_p = it.current_y + it.ascent + it.descent > it.last_visible_y;
          move_it_by_lines (&it, 1);
          partial_p = it.current_y > it.last_visible_y;

(This is preceded by moving the iterator to the point's screen line or
to EOB, whichever comes first.)  The value it.current_y is the Y
coordinate of the top edge of a glyph row (the value is zero for the
first screen line), so if it.last_visible_y is farther away from that
than the height of the glyph row, that glyph row is fully visible;
otherwise it isn't.

Yep, good catch.
