CVE-2015-8241 Buffer overread with XML parser in xmlNextChar

CVE-2015-8317 - issues in the xmlParseXMLDecl function: If we fail conversing the current input stream while processing the encoding declaration of the XMLDecl then it's safer to just abort there and not try to report further errors. - If the string is not properly terminated do not try to convert to the given encoding.

Additional fix for off by one error in previous patch for CVE-2015-7942 (thanks to Salvatore for spotting this)
