[xml] Release of libxml2-2.9.1

  I actually tagged it in git and pushed the tarball and rpms
on the FTP on Friday, but forgot to send the announcement immediately,
sorry about that ! You can find it at the usual place at:

  This is mostly a bug fix release, as 2.9.0 buffer conversions still
had a number of issues left, hopefully all related bugs have been found
and killed now. There is still one bug left and not yet fixed about
