Round 2 webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~jbachorik/7199353/webrev.01

Changes against round 1:

* @javax.management.ConstructorProperties (was 
* diff is against the current jdk9 (eg. not the jigsaw repo)
* removed warning when @j.b.ConstructorProperties is used
* changed the wording in the reconstruction rules in @MXBean as recommended
* changed the issue synopsis as recommended

JDK JMX tests are still passing completely.
