expat: Update to 2.2.8

Release 2.2.8 Fri Septemper 13 2019
        Security fixes:
       #317 #318  CVE-2019-15903 -- Fix heap overflow triggered by
                    XML_GetCurrentLineNumber (or XML_GetCurrentColumnNumber),

                    fixed in commit c20b758c332d9a13afbbb276d30db1d183a85d43

        Bug fixes:
            #240  Fix cases where XML_StopParser did not have any effect
                    when called from inside of an end element handler

                    previously, only "-d DIRECTORY" would give you a proper
                    exit code:
                      # xmlwf -d . <<<'<not well-formed>' \ 
2>/dev/null ; echo $?
                      # xmlwf <<<'<not well-formed>' \ 
2>/dev/null ; echo $?

expat: update to 2.2.7.

For a security fix.

Release 2.2.7 Wed June 19 2019
        Security fixes:
       #186 #262  Fix extraction of namespace prefixes from XML names;
                    XML names with multiple colons could end up in the
                    wrong namespace, and take a high amount of RAM and CPU
                    resources while processing, opening the door to
                    use for denial-of-service attacks

        Other changes:
       #195 #197  Autotools/CMake: Utilize -fvisibility=hidden to stop
