Re: [PATCH] time: Avoid alignment gaps in __tzfile_read

Is the idea to slightly decrease the amount of memory used, at the expense of a slight increase in CPU time because of the two fread calls? If so, I don't see the benefit of the change; usually we'd rather save CPU time even if a bit more memory is used.
