Disable Hardware acceleration for nvidia legacy driver 71xx

When the nvidia-driver-71xx legacy driver is chosen, hardware acceleration should be disabled by default by adding
Option "RenderAccel" "False"
in the Device section of the generated xorg.conf file.
The reason being is that this driver is poor quality and buggy, and on three cards I've tested (TNT2 Pro, geforce 2 Ti , geforce 2 MX 400) having the acceleration enabled caused complete system crashes at random points.
Given also that this driver is for old graphics cards, it may be considered that the composite extension is disabled by default also when this driver is chosen.
