Spec [1](http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~gbierman/8246771/8246771-20200928/specs/local-statics-jls.html), section 9.6 Annotation Interfaces states that:

"It is a compile-time error if an annotation declaration is nested within the body of a local class or interface declaration (14.3), or within the body of an anonymous class"

javac is not implementing this assertion. The proposed patch is fixing this issue,
