Subject: DST change issue for timezones in southern hemisphere


For some reason DST change in southern hemisphere occurs 1 hour late 
when clock is turned backward and 1 hour early when clock is turned forward.

For example, timezone for spec for Brazil is:
Which means that DST change occurs at midnight.

Output of date for both DST changes:

~# date
Sun Feb 19 00:59:59 BRST 2017
~# date
Sun Feb 19 00:00:00 BRT 2017

~# date
Sat Oct 14 22:59:59 BRT 2017
~# date
Sun Oct 15 00:00:00 BRST 2017

I've tested the same code on same hardware but with uClibc library 
instead of musl and it works fine.
