Subject: Patch for security issue CVE-2021-3541
Origin: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/libxml2/-/commit/8598060bacada41a0eb09d95c97744ff4e428f8e
Bug: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/libxml2/-/issues/228
Bug-Debian: https://bugs.debian.org/988603
Bug-Debian-Security: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2021-3541

This is relapted to parameter entities expansion and following
the line of the billion laugh attack. Somehow in that path the
counting of parameters was missed and the normal algorithm based
on entities "density" was useless.
