use the name UTC instead of GMT for UTC timezone
notes by maintainer: both C and POSIX use the term UTC to specify related functionality, despite POSIX defining it as something more like UT1 or historical (pre-UTC) GMT without leap seconds. neither specifies the associated string for %Z. old choice of "GMT" violated principle of least surprise for users and some applications/tests. use "UTC" instead.
