[classlib][luni] Default GMT TimeZone has no display name defined

                 Key: HARMONY-6269
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6269
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
         Environment: all
            Reporter: Catherine Hope
            Priority: Minor

The default TimeZone, GMT, has no display names defined - calling getDisplayName() always
returns "GMT+00:00" instead of "Greenwich Mean Time" or the short form "GMT".  This also has
implications for date formatting - creating a SimpleDateFormat with pattern "z", will display
the time zone as "GMT+00:00" instead of "GMT".  The harmony implementation of TimeZone.getDisplayName()
is deferring to com.ibm.icu.util.TimeZone for the value, which has some long display names
set , but not GMT, so I'm unsure where to fix this.
