Chromium Linux: Switch to using Skia to render widgets.

In order to sandbox the Chromium renderer on Linux we need to remove the
X connection. GTK cannot render without an X connection so, for now, we
render widgets ourselves.

Previously use didn't anti-alias fonts in order to match Windows font
rendering exactly. This was helpful when bootstrapping our layout
tests. Now, however, we are ready to enable it.
