In VS2015 timezone and friends have been replace by _timezone (related issue24643). The second problem is missing _PyVerify_fd during linking phase.

There are *many* more fixes required than just these. We're not prepared to take the changes into 2.7 at this stage, and we don't want to encourage people to think that MSVC 14.0 or later are supported when we know that it's incomplete.

I'd suggest creating a fork and making your updates in that. You are welcome to promote it as MSVC 14.0-compatible sources for anyone else who wants to build 2.7 from them, and you may find more contributors to help you that way.
