Description

tzdata 2021e has been released, and without some of the controversial changes from 2021b.

Updating to 2021e will give us the latest data for current timezones but will effectively render pre-1970 data less trustworthy (and demonstrably wrong in cases).

I tested this by using Robert's test program from #13467 to compare the before and after output from libzoneinfo routines, which showed:

                        Pacific/Guam
        Kiribati
                        Pacific/Tarawa
-                       Pacific/Enderbury
+                       Pacific/Kanton

                        Pacific/Kiritimati
        Marshall Islands
                        Pacific/Majuro

which reflects the renaming of the Enderbury zone as per the tzdata release notes.

I also tested the OmniOS installer timezone selector with these new data.
