1.71.1. RHBA-2010:0764: bug fix update

Updated libxml2 packages that fix an erratic behavior of the XPath implementation.
libxml2 is a library for parsing and manipulating XML files. It includes support for reading, modifying, and writing XML and HTML files. Libxml2 implements the XPath specification which is a language for addressing parts of an XML document.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Due to an uninitialized field in one of the private libxml2 XPath data structures, the XPath evaluation may have return incorrect results. This error has been fixed, the field is now initialized properly, and XPath evaluation returns expected results. ( BZ#640191)
Users of libxml2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
