If I understand correctly, the patch translates as UTC -4 being the no-DST
timezone for Chile until 25 April 2015; right?.

If so, the patch it's OK; as long as it's possible to change the start date
for this (in case the decrees changes the definition of 'Hora Oficial'
instead of just derogating DST)
