[xml] Release of libxml2-2.6.1

  After the 2.6.0 big release a number of bugs and fixes accumulated
in the last week. You can get a cleaned up code base at:
      ftp://xmlsoft.org/  and GNOME FTP mirrors

 This is mostly bug fixes:
* Unix compilation patches: libxml.m4 (Patrick Welche), warnings
  cleanup (William Brack)
* Windows compilation patches (Joachim Bauch, Stephane Bidoul, Igor Zlatkovic)
* xmlWriter bugfix (Alfred Mickautsch)
* chvalid.[ch]: couple of fixes from Stephane Bidoul
* context reset: error state reset, push parser reset (Graham Bennett)
* context reuse: generate errors if file is not readable
* defaulted attributes for element coming from internal entities (Stephane
* Python: tab and spaces mix (William Brack)
* Error handler could crash in DTD validation in 2.6.0
* xmlReader: do not use the document or element _private field
* testSAX.c: avoid a problem with some PIs (Massimo Morara)
* general bug fixes: mandatory encoding in text decl, serializing
  Document Fragment nodes, xmlSearchNs 2.6.0 problem (Kasimier Buchcik),
  XPath errors not reported, slow HTML parsing of large documents.

  All libxml2 errors reported to bugzilla have been looked at, and
except pathological cases they should be fixed. If I missed something which
was sent to the list, please register the problem in bugzilla to make sure
this is not forgotten under a large pile of junk mail !

  Thanks to all who reported bugs and provided fixes,
