Shadows should be disabled by default on slower cards/drivers

Shadows on some cards/drivers are really slow and should be disabled by default there (eventually the shadows setting on these cards should also be "greyed out" in the GUI and could be only changed in the config file).
On my Radeon X1600:
- with the mesa r300 gallium driver shadows are pretty fast;
- with the mesa r300 classic driver enabling shadows make the game run at 1 frame every 20s, while it work at a playable fps without them.
I am attaching glxinfo obtained while using both drivers.
