Three comments :

- Maybe we should get rid of function parameter names beginning with an
  underscore (see _kernel_osbyte()).  Remove the underscores ?
- It is "RISC OS", not "RiscOS" (tzset.c patch).
- _POSIX_TZNAME_MAX is increased from 3 to 7.  But where is this
  dependancy in the UnixLib code ? Or in the currently loaded Territory
  module ?
