Fix for

Perl code that uses removeChild() from LibXML::XML::Node causes a segmentation fault on specially crafted input.  Please see for further details and how to reproduce the crash.

The patch provided upstream also works for LibXML-XML-1.90 in Gentoo and fixes the problem.  It is attached here, too.

this bug fixed by upstream with this patch long time ago.

> Fixed in 2.0011, which was uploaded to CPAN. Thanks!
