Hi all,

Currently, a warning is generated when compiling the following code by using the option `-Xlint`.

import java.io.Serializable;
class B implements Serializable {
    private static final byte serialVersionUID = 5;

A.java:10: warning: [serial] serialVersionUID must be of type long in class B
    private static final byte serialVersionUID = 5;
1 warning

The annotation `@SuppressWarnings("serial")` on  field serialVersionUID is ignored by the compiler.
This patch fixes it and adds some tests.
Thank you for taking the time to review.

Best Regards.
