This is fine to be a workaround for the test case for now. It probably will need to be
undo-ed after the propose change for #8015666 get integrated.

The proposal for #8015666 is to keep the "existing" behavior of ZipEntry.getTime()
to return a LastModifiedTime converted from the zip entry's ms-dos-formatted date/time
field by using the "default" timezone. A new pair ZipEntry.get/setLastModifiedTime()
will be added to access the "real" UTC time stored in the zip entry, if presents.

The API doc will be updated accordingly as well to explicitly explain the source of the
date/time and the its timezone sensitive conversion.
