ogr2ogr2 with "-clipsrc" option clips shapefiles faster than QGIS clip algorithm. Exposing this functionality in Processing would be very useful

I agree, adding this ogr based operation would help a lot, as qgis python clip tool is pretty bad at large datasets.

ogr2ogr can also clip by extent, using the -spat option, this could also be nice to have.
