Add a simplified backport of g_steal_pointer()

This will be used in tests later in the branch.

Sadly we can't use GLIB_VERSION_2_44 unless we are willing to have a
hard dependency on GLib 2.44, which would force us to do all our
Travis-CI builds in Docker containers rather than in ye olde base
system, and that adds 50% to the time taken to do builds.
