Commit message

timezone: use a symlink when updating /etc/localtime

Unless /etc/localtime is an existing file and not a symlink,
then we will symlink instead of copying the tz_file to /etc/localtime.

The copy was due to an old bug in Ubuntu, symlink should be preferred.

but this can only be fine, if /usr is mounted in the initramfs, or /usr is not a separate mount point.

Thanks for fixing this! Maybe you want to update the commit message, as this was not really due "to an old bug in Ubuntu", but we just forgot to change this along with tzdata.
