Sadly the patch is wrong - the XmlResolver in XmlReaderSettings is
used only to resolve DTD or whatever dependent files, not the XML
stream itself. For XML stream, you could just pass the stream
itself to one of the constructors (for example, by using your

XmlResolver could be explicitly set null (which indicates that it
must skip external entity resolution) and in such case your patch
causes NullReferenceException. (I will add such case to our tests.)
