RFR: 8256809: Annotation processing causes NPE during flow analysis

If an error is found in JavacProcessingEnvironment.newRound, the erroneous ClassSymbols are meant to have their types replaced with new ClassTypes. There is a bug here where the check for whether a ClassSymbol is erroneous happens after the ClassSymbol is reset, replacing its kind with `TYP`. This means the check always fails, and the `kind == ERR` branch is never taken.

This can lead to a NullPointerException later on during flow analysis, which I've captured with the included test.
