#2092: libxml2.8.0 namespace prefix issue

Comment(by pramsey):

 The problem is is_kml_namespace (probably is_gml_namespace has similar
 issues, they just aren't tested as much) testing the name space element,
 which looks like this:
 $11 = {
   next = 0x0,
   href = 0x0,
   prefix = 0x100a038e0 "kml",
   _private = 0x0,
   context = 0x0
 Note that (a) it exists and (b) is has a null href. The routine expects
 that if you have an ns element, it's got everything, and that if you don't
 have one, you can assume none was declared. I guess the old routine
 stripped the prefixes without populating the name space elements, fun.
