Force Software QtQuick rendering when starting with QPainter compositor

If KWin/Wayland starts up with the QPainter compositor we force software
rendering in QtQuick. It doesn't make sense to try to use the OpenGL
renderer as that normally just results in an abort when trying to create
the QOpenGLContext.

Test Plan:
Run KWin with KWIN_COMPOSE=Q, tried to quick tile a window and
used Alt+Tab. Worked fine, didn't crash anymore.
