RFR 8175013: Add @Generated Annotation

I have update the webrev to remove MODULE as a Target for now as javax.annotations.processing uses the JDK 8 compiler during the build process.

Given where we are in the JDK 9 timeline, I prefer to not to change the Retention value.  We can have a discussion for JDK 10 regarding the merits of changing the value.  Right now the intent is to have a replacement for the JSR 250 flavor of this annotation to provide for an easier transition.
