> javac is crashing if a class file is forged so that an annotation can be applicable to an unknown target. It would be equivalent to the following declaration:
> @Target({ElementType.FIELD, ElementType.NO_SUCH})
> @interface A {}
> if the compiler process this source it would issue a compiler error, indicating that symbol `NO_SUCH` cant be found. Currently our class reader just issues a warning and move on. This is OK as it could be that the loaded class won't be used anyway but if this annotation is actually applied to symbol as in:
> class B {
>     @A Object o;
> }
> then this to my understanding should be a compilation error. Currently javac is crashing and this is not acceptable, so this PR is fixing this issue so that a compilation error is issued instead.
