This is a follow on fix to 8217366. There are several root causes 
included in this bug, when the runtime supplements missing display names 
in non-US locales :-

- Retrieve the names for the requested id first, before it maps to the 
canonical id, and on canonicalizing the id, use unique way 
(canonicalTZID()) to canonicalize.

- Retrieve the names in the same manner, between 
DateFormatSymbols.getZoneStrings() and TimeZone.getDisplayName().

- Correctly map the Chinese locales between JDK and CLDR, in terms of 
Simplified/Traditional scripts.
