[xml] Availability of libxml2-2.9.4

  So it took me one more week than expected to get there, but the
release is done, it's gatted in git, and signed tarball and rpms are
available at the usual place:


This is a big release, and includes a number of security patches (which
is why that took longer than expected), there is also a significant number
of 'normal' bug fixes (sorry Pete, didn't managed to fix the regexp issue
yet :-\ ) and a fair number of portability fixes including massive patch set
from Patrick for OS400.

  Thanks a lot of the help I got for this release, especially the Apple
team David Kilzer and Pranjal Jumde for a number of issues related to
and Nick who fixed a set of XPath issues, but there are many other contributors
as the list above may reflect, simply submitting patches to doc fixes 
or raising the issues is useful to the very large community of libxml2 users !

  Thanks and enjoy !
