[xml] Release candidate 2 of libxml2-2.9.0

  I have just tagged the git tree and pushed tarballs and rpms
to ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2/

  The last commit is a bit controversial, it changes the default
behaviour of the HTML parser to not drop 'blank' space that it
considers ignorable, but instead keep them. There is an
HTML_PARSE_NOBLANKS option to drop those nodes.

  It was feeling really weird to drop data by default and ignoring
the parser flag about this. But this change the default behaviour
which had been there for ages, and that's the reason i think it's
controversial. But since there is no way with the current code to
get those data back, this had to change !
  So please give it a try and if you rely heavilly on the HTML
parser please double check the effect of that last patch, you
may have to change the code to use the option to get back to the
old behaviour,

  I still have one issue left which is the error that Daniel
is seeing and I didn't yet reproduce, but we're on our way for
a release next week.
