Bug#765976: tzsetup: please don't offer time zone selection for Germany

Quoting Joey Hess (joeyh@debian.org):
> Most countries have only one timezone, and for those the country-zone
> mapping is stored in the tzmap file (automatically generated from
> zone.tab), and no question is asked. Some countries have multiple timezones

For the record, I'm in favour of applying the Büsingen exception to
tzmap.override. I was not, in the beginning of this issue, but then
reconsidered that opinion when looking deeper at what we're already
doing for many other places in the world.

I applied the patch in git and, unless there is a strong objection,
I'll upload tzsetup with that patch, ASAP.
