Here is a webrev for core reflection support for type annotations:

This code is based on the tl/jdk repository, but in order to run the tests you need a javac with type annotations support and also a recent copy of the VM that includes this change set: (This also means this code can't be pushed until all supporting pieces are in place.)

Type annotations are still a bit of a moving target so there will be follow up work on this. There is no caching of annotations in this version and I am not sure how we want to do the space/time trade of for type annotations.
