  Err you want to use the push parser when you don't have all data available
at parser creation time.

  Get the xmllint.c program look at the code in parseAndPrintFile
which handle the push testing case, it does something  like

                res = fread(chars, 1, 4, f);
                if (res > 0) {
                    ctxt = xmlCreatePushParserCtxt(NULL, NULL,
                                chars, res, filename);
                    xmlCtxtUseOptions(ctxt, options);
                    while ((res = fread(chars, 1, size, f)) > 0) {
                        xmlParseChunk(ctxt, chars, res, 0);
                    xmlParseChunk(ctxt, chars, 0, 1);
                    doc = ctxt->myDoc;
                    ret = ctxt->wellFormed;
                    if (!ret) {
                        doc = NULL;

  You create the parser context with first 4 bytes of your stream,
define which options you want to use, and then xmlParseChunk( ... 0)
for each part until you reach the end where you do xmlParseChunk( ... 1)
