Omit libxml2 memory cleanup to prevent a crash (bsc#1047449)

Skipping the cleanup
- also skips some callbacks, but this agent does not use them
- leaks memory, but when this agent goes, so does the rest of the program

http://xmlsoft.org/html/libxml-parser.html#xmlCleanupParser says:

This function name is somewhat misleading. It does not clean up parser
state, it cleans up memory allocated by the library itself. It is a
cleanup function for the XML library. It tries to reclaim all related
global memory allocated for the library processing. It doesn't
deallocate any document related memory. One should call
xmlCleanupParser() only when the process has finished using the
library and all XML/HTML documents built with it. See also
xmlInitParser() which has the opposite function of preparing the
library for operations.

WARNING: if your application is multithreaded or has plugin support
calling this may crash the application if another thread or a plugin is
still using libxml2. It's sometimes very hard to guess if libxml2 is in
use in the application, some libraries or plugins may use it without
notice. In case of doubt abstain from calling this function or do it
just before calling exit() to avoid leak reports from valgrind !
