[fpc-pascal] UniversalTimeToLocal(UT: TDateTime) / LocalTimeToUniversal(LT: TDateTime)

Hello FreePascal developers,

I believe that since SVN commit 30628 UniversalTimeToLocal(UT: TDateTime)
and LocalTimeToUniversal(LT: TDateTime) are reporting incorrect values.

The multiple parameter versions of these functions had their offset
handling changed to a more expected format as described in bug id 24752 [1].

The single parameter versions call GetLocalTimeOffset, which ultimately
calls GetTimeZoneInformation. This function returns the 'bias', where: UTC
= local time + bias [2].

The bias needs to be inverted before being sent to the new
UniversalTimeToLocal/LocalTimeToUniversal functions.

Please consider the attached patch.

Thank you.
