Description:
According to MySQL's Bogdan Kecman and according to IANA
http://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry
(which will be our official authority for language and region subtag codes),
the locale name 'sr_YU' is obsolete.
We should continue to allow it in case somebody has used it, it's harmless.

However we should also allow 'sr_RS' with exactly the same rules as 'sr_YU'.

We should not also allow 'sr_CS' which is also obsolete.
This affects @@lc_time_names and @@lc_messages.
The MySQL Reference Manual
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/locale-support.html
should describe sr_SR as 'Serbian - Serbia'.

How to repeat:
How to repeat:
SET @@lc_time_names='sr_YU';
SET @@lc_time_names='sr_RS';

Noted in 5.5.0, 6.0.14 changelogs.

The Serbian locale name 'sr_YU' is obsolete. It is still recognized
for backward compatibility, but 'sr_RS' now should be used instead.
