Nothing that actually happened. But she saved him from whatever added peril that the "Great Intelligence" put him in.

I believe that all the saving Clara did was only undoing what the GI added at each splinter. I don't think (at least I hope SM wasn't saying that the Doctor would have failed at saving whatever he was saving without Clara's help had the GI not added something more. If I'm wrong, and Clara was at different points irrelevant to the GI and saving the Doctor in the background (like hosing down the Vasha Nerada so they didn't get to the Doctor at an earlier point in the episode/adventure) then Moffat is an ass and negates everything the Doctor did using his intelligence.
Yea, that's the way I saw it too. She wasn't there in the first round, she was merely striking back to correct the attacks by the Great Intelligence, that also weren't there in the first round
