Yes, Graal code changes frequently and  we need to run annotation processor to generate these dependencies for each jdk.vm.compiler (Graal) module build.

> The alternative is to declare `uses` and `provides` in module-info.java in the source repo so that a reader can see the module descriptor content without needing to do a build.  A test to detect if the module-info.java is out-of-sync with the annotated options.  In addition a make target to generate the list of `use` and `provides` can be used to generate module-info.java to be included in any change in the annotated options list.

What is "a reader"? And how to check "out-of-sync" without running 'processor'?

Sorry, I am not familiar with all this modules build process.
