OpenJDK7 for Xenial (Ubuntu 16.04)

PPA description

OpenJDK7 was removed in Xenial (Ubuntu 16.04). This PPA brings it back.

Note that you should probably use OpenJDK8 unless you absolutely need it.

Source: https://github.com/shuhaowu/xenialjdk7-ppa

Note: tzdata is disabled from the build. Not quite sure what the impact is but building CyanogenMod with this seems to be fine.
