PHP 7.4.25 (CentOS), 7.4.3(Ubuntu20.04), 7.2.34(Ubuntu20.04)

It goes into an endless loop when trying to add a 15M interval only when working with "negative" timezones. Doesn't happen for European "pozitive" timezones

Test script:
$timezoneDST = new DateTimeZone('America/New_York');
$date = new DateTime("2020-11-01", $timezoneDST);
$dateInterval = new DateInterval('PT15M');
$counter = 0;
while($counter < 500){

Expected result:
class DateTime#1 (3) {
  public $date =>
  string(26) "2020-11-06 04:00:00.000000"
  public $timezone_type =>
  public $timezone =>
  string(16) "America/New_York"

Actual result:
class DateTime#2 (3) {
  public $date =>
  string(26) "2020-11-01 01:00:00.000000"
  public $timezone_type =>
  public $timezone =>
  string(16) "America/New_York"

This is apparently fixed as of PHP 8.1.0[1]; I'm not sure whether
the fix will be backported.

Ah, I hope it will be backported, cause after looking into the project and the libraries that are being used, not sure if I'd be able to upgrade to 8.1.
On the bright side, we'd have something less than an year to try and do it.
