Please review the implementation of the javac side of method parameter
reflection.  The feature request can be found here:


The names, as well as other information about method parameters can now
optionally be stored in Java class files.  There are updates to javac to
create the parameter attributes when a -parameters flag is given.  There
are also updates to the API to correctly parse
method parameter attributes, and to javap to print them.

This code includes new tests, and has been tested by running numerous
regression test suites, including some with javac hardwired to generate
class files with parameter annotations.

The open webrev can be found here:
