Looks like we both reached the same patch for this one independently :)
systemv was removed from tzdata some time ago and wasn't even being read by the JDK as far as I could see. Its contents
are duplicated in jdk11_backward anyway. Good to see both it and pacificnew being removed. In the unlikely event the
removal of Pacific_New is problematic, it could be added to jdk11_backward as well, but it seems very unlikely.
