This is also broke my image based on Ubuntu, which will set `TZ=Asia/Shanghai`, they used to work, but not anymore. It's a behavior change, which affect a lot people, so it shouldn't be changed quitely.

And it's also not consistent with `14.04` image behavior, which contains `tzdata` package, so support `TZ` environment variables.

It's concerning that the sister bug was marked as Wont Fix.

This is a breaking change. Please revert both changes (locales and tzdata). Or are we supposed to consider all releases of official Ubuntu images to be unstable?
