Hi folks,

The php-codesniffer package uses code from the xml PHP extension
(simplexml_load_string).  In php7.0 in unstable, the xml extension has now
been split into a separate binary package.  This makes php-codesniffer fail
to run unless this additional package is installed.

In Ubuntu, I've applied the attached patch to fix this.  Please consider
applying it in Debian as well.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
