Bug#351049: libc6: America/Havana DST info wrong for 2005/2006

Cuba did not switch back to non-DST time on October 2005, but the
timezone info in libc thinks it did:
Rule Cuba 2005 max - Oct lastSun 0:00s 0 S
That line should probably be changed to
Rule Cuba 2006 max - Oct lastSun 0:00s 0 S
(and a friend that spent vacation in Cuba)
Note that the timezone/northamerica says:
# From Evert van der Veer via Steffen Thorsen (2004-10-28):
# Cuba is not going back to standard time this year.
# From Paul Eggert (2004-10-28):
# says that it's due to a problem at the Antonio Guiteras
# thermoelectric plant, and says "This October there will be no return
# to normal hours (after daylight saving time)".
# For now, let's assume that it's a one-year temporary measure.
So it became a two-year temporary measure? We are not sure if it won't
become a 3+ year temporary measure.
