      using long locale name in Locale functions in
    - debian/patches/CVE-2021-30535.patch: Fix edge cases with baseName
      in setKeywordValue function in source/common/locid.cpp to
      prevent double free and protect from heap corruption.

  * Fix failing tests causing build-time failures: (LP: #1951432)

      in source/test/cintltst/ccaltst.c and TestGenericAPI in
      source/test/intltest/tztest.cpp to accept tz.version with longer

    - debian/tests/control: add libicu-dev and pkg-config dependencies in
      smoke test, and build-essential dependency in build-test.
    - debian/tests/smoke: change smoke test tool from icu-config (deprecated)
      to pkg-config.
    - debian/tests/ustring.cpp: add 'using namespace icu'.
