Calendar Event Time Logcat

Description:
When a new event is created, the start and end day show the times that the event ends, but it does not specify what days they start and end on. This makes them seem to be separate events from the all day events in between the start and end days which could be very confusing to the user.


Repro Steps:
1) Update a Flame to 20150202154235
2) Open Calendar App> Tap on "+" to create a new event
3) Set the end date to 3 or more days after the start date
4) Set the end time to be before the start time Ex: Start 8AM, End 6AM


Actual:
If the user taps on the first day of the event in month view, it will appear that the event ends on that day, and that the event ends before it starts


Expected:
The user is shown that the end time is for a different day.

This issue DOES reproduce on all branches (2.2,2.1,2.0) with the v18D-1 base, as well as the v188-1 base.

ni? to Harly to get this on his radar for potential solutions.

One potential solution that I can think of is having the end time field of start date, and start time field of end date blank or with "|" to avoid misunderstanding.
