hwclock: always set the kernel's timezone
Properly tell the kernel at bootup, and any later time zone changes, the actual system time zone. Things like the kernel's FAT filesystem driver needs the actual time zone to calculate the proper local time to use for the on-disk time stamps. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=802198
