Your subject is misleading. Timezone handling is a user space  issue.
It has nothing to do with the kernel verison.

This has nothing to do with your problems.

BB 0.6 ? AFAICT there is no such version. Do you mean  busybox-0.60.5 ?

This is awfully old. Maybe  you  should  try  running  an  up-to-date
version  of  busybox  first?  If  this doesn;'t work, please consider
using the real GNU date  command.  You  should  understand  that  the
busybox  tools  only provide limited functionality, so fancy features
like complex timezone support may not be available.
