The attached file reproduce the bug in the 3.14.0 version.

The RSSyl plugin crash when it tries to open an Atom feed where the "xmlns"
attribute isn't present in the <feed> tag.

I think the error occures in the _elparse_start_chooser function (parsers.c:90)
of the libfeed library :

            /* ATOM feed detected, let's check version */
            version = feed_parser_get_attribute_value(attr, "xmlns");
            if( !strcmp(version, "http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom") ||
                    !strcmp(version, "https://www.w3.org/2005/Atom") )
                feedtype = FEED_TYPE_ATOM_10;
                feedtype = FEED_TYPE_ATOM_03;

In this piece of code, the return of the feed_parser_get_attribute_value isn't
checked : a NULL pointer can be passed to the strcmp function if the attribute
"xmlns" doesn't exist.

The attached file reproduce the bug in the 3.14.0 version.
