Can I have a review for a 8027848 [1] bug fix . There is unimplemented 
functionality related to the future GMT offset changes.
The ZoneInfoFile class doesn't analyses if there is such offset changes 
and as a result incorrectly creates the ZoneInfo instance.
It was discovered during the TestZoneInfo310 test execution as part of 
tzdata2013h update [3].
