Here is a patch to fix the bug. I added a parameter 'encode' to
map_sql_value_to_xml_value() and pass false for xml attributes.

    char *
    map_sql_value_to_xml_value(Datum value, Oid type, bool encode)

Also a special regression test is added for it:

SELECT xmlelement(name element,
                  xmlattributes (1 as one, 'deuce' as two, '<>&"''' as three),
                  'content', '<>&"''');
 <element one="1" two="deuce" three="&lt;&gt;&amp;&quot;'">content&lt;&gt;&amp;"'</element>
(1 row)
