Linux users experiencing slowdown due to accessibility being turned on

Project Member Reported by dmazz...@chromium.org, Jul 16 2012

Issue description

Some desktop Linux users are experiencing a slowdown because they have the system accessibility setting on without realizing it, which trigger's Chrome's accessibility mode and slows things down.

As a quick patch for M21 we'll turn off auto-detection of accessibility, then we'll do a proper fix for M22.

Don't turn on accessibility automatically on Linux.

With this change, a Linux user can still manually switch on
accessibility support with the --force-renderer-accessibility flag,
but it will never get switched on automatically. Let's merge this to
M21 so it never happens to users who don't want it, then come up with
a smarter way to detect automatically later.

TEST=Run Chrome with "assistive technology" flag on, observe no slowdown in gmail anymore.
