8216404: Elements.getPackageOf should handle modules
In summary, the method Elements.getPackageOf was not updated to specify
how modules should be handled. The javac implementation currently throws
an NPE in that case.
The fix is to add a check for that situation in the javac implementation
of the Elements interface. This could also be added at the Symbol level,
but adding it to Elements seemed a more direct approach.
