Pack200 converts the timestamps to UTC for the pack200 archive format,
in order to do so, the default TimeZone was set to UTC, while reading
writing archives. This is problematic in a multi threaded environment.
With the fix for JDK-8075526 in place, the pack200 code is refactored
to use the new Jar/Zip APIs, and eliminates issues arising from pack200
setting the default TimeZone.
