Btw, we had plans to support the kernel' side of localtime (really
broken by design) for FAT and SCSI and network stuff, but it turned
out to be an unsupportable mess, and we just declared FAT timestamps
as UTC (like Android does).

Unless someone has an idea how to fix and use all that reliably, I'll
just go and remove the DST timezone data parser src/shared/time-dst.c
and its user in timedatctl.
