[xml] Release of libxml2 2.9.8

  It's awfully late but it's out, I tagged it in git and pushed signed
tarball and rpms to the usual place:


 at least it got a one month testing on my machines, no issues so far,
I hope this will be a good release for everybody, mostly bug fixes and
improvements with a pinch of portability fixes:

- python: remove single use of _PyVerify_fd (Patrick Welche)
- Build more test executables on Windows/MSVC (Nick Wellnhofer)
- Stop including ansidecl.h (Nick Wellnhofer)
- Fix libz and liblzma detection (Nick Wellnhofer)
- Revert "Compile testapi with -Wno-unused-function" (Nick Wellnhofer)

Bug Fixes:
- Fix xmlParserEntityCheck (Nick Wellnhofer)
- Halt parser in case of encoding error (Nick Wellnhofer)
- Clear entity content in case of errors (Nick Wellnhofer)

true causes errors for ICU. (Joel Hockey)
