Jenkins should create xml 1.1 output in order to support control characters that are illegal in xml 1.0

      The current implementation of XmlFile.java emits an XML 1.0 header, which breaks things like Move/Copy/Promote if the user has included any characters that are illegal in XML 1.0 (such as Control-XX, etc) in their jobs.
      XStream, which is used for serialization/deserialization, deals with XML fragments, and doesn't have an issue reading/writing this non well-formed XML. Changing XmlFile.java so that it creates xml 1.1  here will allow jenkins config files to support these special characters. This also requires updating the underlying XML Pull Parser being used by XStream to something that support XML v1.1
