I had hoped that writing a few more test to cover the modules cases 
would be a simple exercise, but that is not how things worked out!

The resulting set of changes is now:


Major differences between the prior version sent for review are in the files


The earlier iteration of the fix was adequate for package-info files; 
however, there are several complications related to modules the previous 
fix did not account for.

The getElementsAnnotatedWith methods with a java.lang.Class parameter 
need some way to bridge between the core reflection world and the 
compile-time reflection world of javax.lang.model. The way to do this is 
to construct a TypeElement for an annotation type corresponding to the 
Class object for the annotation type argument by mapping from the name 
of the annotation type to a type element via 
Elements.getTypeElement(name). A wrinkle is that the behavior of 
Elements.getTypeElement(name) was redefined in JDK 9 to account for 
modules since a name can correspond to multiple types post-modules. The 
revised fix first tries Elements.getTypeElement(name) and if that fails, 
including failing due to multiple results being found, it fails over to 
the two-argument version of Elements.getTypeElement which has a module 
parameter. The module parameter is set to a module whose name matches 
the name of the module of the Class, if such a Class is in a named module.

On the testing sides, as discussed in JEP 200 when the compiler is 
running in single-module mode (which includes when compiling a 
module-info file), all the files being compiled are assumed to be in 
that module even if they would not be in the module by virtue of their 
file system locations. This necessitates some of the testing conditions 
being conditionally excluded.

I'll leave any extension of this test to multi-module compilation mode 
for future work.
