File tzcode-link.diff of Package timezone

This patch is used on openSUSE versions older than 12.2.
Back then, /etc/localtime was either a hard link to a zone
file in /usr/share/zoneinfo or a copy of it.

By default, zic tries the following approaches to create
/etc/localtime:

  1. Hard link
  2. Symbolic link
  3. File copy

This patch changes the order to:

  1. Hard link
  2. File copy
  3. Symbolic link
