Please approve the backport for these two fixes, which cause javac to
generate Runtime[In]Visible[Type,Parameter]Annotations attributes that
correctly account for synthetic parameters.

Note that the patches did not apply cleanly.  In the case of 8029012,
langtools SQE staff have added cases to the
referenceinfos/Constructor.java test that are not present in 8u.  For
8065132, diamondification made a behavior-invariant change to the source
in ClassWriter.java

After these changes, all tests pass.

The JBS issues are here:

A webrev containing both changesets is here:
